The thermostat on a 2004 Chevy Venture is changed by draining the radiator, removing the upper radiator hose, and unbolting the thermostat housing. The old thermostat and gasket can then be removed and replaced.
Look for a brass object with a two wire connector screwed into the intake near the thermostat housing.
The 2003 Chevrolet Venture coolant capacity is four gallons. The coolant can be mixed 50 percent anti-freeze and 50 percent water.
The thermostat on a 2001 Chevrolet Venture 6-cylinder 2-wheel drive car is located where the radiator hose ends. A replacement thermostat for a 2001 Chevy Venture is priced between $8.00 and $11.00 depending on where you buy it.
Hi,The coolant temperature sensor is location very close to the thermostat itself, but that is hard to find or get to also. If you follow the top radiator hose back to the engine, you will see where the thermostat housing is, very close to the throttle body. There sensor is just forward of the thermostat housing.I have included a link to a page with shows where to the bleed valves are located, and the bleed valve that is close to the thermostat is also very near the coolant temperature sensor. In on of the pictures you can see the wiring at the top of the sensor. It is a tight fit, but you can get in there.Good Luck, GregP.S. The pictures in the link show a 2001 Venture, but the engines in these two different years are identical and the locations are the same.

it is located next to the crossover pipe for the exhaust. you have to remove it to get to the thermostat housing.
The Thermostat on a 2000 Chevy Venture is located on the drivers side of the engine, it is mounted under the throttle-body of the fuel-air intake, u can follow the hose up to it, I have changed mine two time, although the throttle-body must be removed to access the Thermostat, and there are only three screws holding the thermostat housing on, it is somewhat hard to get at and I suggest that only someone who is familiar with working on cars try it.
for my 2000 Chevy Venture I use DexCool. It is the ONLY one recommended by GM.
If you are referring to the coolant level sensor, it is mounted on the radiator tank, on the passenger side, near the battery.If you are referring to the coolant temperature sensor, it is located near the thermostat housing, just in front of the throttle body.In either case, you should see a connector and wires going to the sensor.Good Luck, Greg
The sensor used for displaying the engine coolant temperature on the gauge in the dash is located near the thermostat housing. I have included a link that has pictures that show its location. Just click on the pictures to enlarge them. When you do, you can see the wires that go to the sensor. Good Luck, Greg
bad coolant level sensor in either side or bottom of plasit coolant resivoir,
Blown head gasket.
because your coolant level is too low. put some antifreeze in it......
Probably a bad thermostat.
its probably just a bad sensor. You can get one cheap at napa or where-ever
When the motor is cool, remove the radiator cap, start vehicle and wait for the temp to reach normal. Shortly thereafter, the thermostat should open and you should see coolant being circulated in the radiator.
needs a thermostat
The thermostat is located on the driver's side of the engine. The thermostat and thermostat housing is mounted on the lower intake manifold. You should be able to follow the radiator hose up to the housing. It is a little hard to see however. Mike
I've got a better question, why is this question in the Chevy venture forum ?
Check to make sure that the engine coolant is full. The thermostat must be working properly as well as the water pump. The hoses going to the heater core should be warm from the water if the climate control is working on the heat side.
This is a common symptom of a blown head gasket. Time to get it tested.Take Care,Greg
It sounds like your heater coil is low on coolant and drains your radiator every time you turn it on. Try letting your van warm up completely, then turn your heater on full blast and then check your radiator coolant level, if its low, that's your problem. Just keep adding until full.
