2004 Chevrolet Venture LT 6 Cyl 3.40L


coolant temperature sensor

I've been the owner of two Chevy Ventures... 1999 and 2004... and both have issues with the cooling... I love the van and I don't want to give up on her... I own the 2004 now and I've noticed that the temperature gauge has been moving higher than it's normal mid range the past few weeks... I would like to know if there is a aftermarket coolant temperature sensor or something to trigger the fan into low speed sooner than it is now.... I don't know the exact temperature that triggers the fan, but any information or advice on how to find this part or diagnose this problem would be appreciated...

Thank you in advance,
Daniel Phrsai

I have an 03 and my parents have an 05, the only thing that seems to help is to leave the A/C on all the time. I have had my thermosat changed twice,plugs, rad. flushed, thermo senser and etc. nothing seems to help. After paying for my van to be parked for 4mos, I am now in the process of contacting my Attorney General. I have found so many complaints on this same problem that is time for GM/Chevy to fix it. These Vans should have been recalled long ago... Hope you can get your running. Sorry, Clarissa T.
