Manifold Gasket Problem
By FJ on


1999 Chevrolet Venture 4dr Minivan


Great ride, excellent features both
interior and exterior, but under the
hood a nightmare. Nice to hear I am not
the only one who experienced an intake
manifold gasket problem. Dealer just
happened to find, yeah right, the
manifold gasket was leaking when I
brought the van in for recall on
sliding door latch. Van had just over
47,000 miles at the time of repair,
which is much too early for this
failure. Very expensive to repair, but
found an authorized service shop that
replaced the gasket more economically
than dealerhip.
GM will not reimburse for repairs, I
think is justified for a poor design. .

Best Features

Comfortable front adjustable seats, excellent noise insulation package, along with convenient sliding side doors.

Worst Features

Please redesign the manifold gasket.
