Nice Van - Gaskets stink
By Lorne on
2002 Chevrolet Venture LS Fwd 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
Typical thing with GM vehicles I have ever purchased. Always something wrong that is notorious with it. Rear disc brakes seizing in the early 90's cars. Now with this engine the head hasket and/or intake gasket is crap. Seems everyone has this problem. But GM won't fix it. No wonder people are buying foreign. I would love to stay domestic, but I can't afford the $3000 repair bills on something they know is a problem. This problem really takes away a comfortable van with lots of room and good gas economy.
Bucket seats and lots of room
Stand by your vehicle. Use proven build techniques. Don't hide routine maintenance parts where no one can get at it. Ie. spark plugs & wires.
