1999 Chevrolet Venture LT 4dr Ext Minivan


Until now, I've been pretty happy with
my 1999 Chevrolet Venture LT. But on
May 6, 02, I found out that the
manifold gasket has failed &
replacement gaskets are on a nation
wide back order. Service at Anderson
Chev. in Los Gatos, CA have no idea
when the repair will be made. I have a
rental car for the duration.

I was told the manifold is made of
aluminum & the engine block is made of
cast iron. The two metals expand and
contract at different rates stressing
the manifold gasket.

Long term prognosis: frequent manifold
gasket replacement.

Best Features

AC works great; decent sound system; it is quiet and comfortable. Until recently, I've been happy with it.

Worst Features

How about making the engine block and manifold out of the same metals?
