2000 Chevrolet Venture 3.4 from North America
For the money, you can't beat it
The fuel gauge that everyone says fluctuates and gives false readings is the sending unit in the tank. It's a simple matter of the contacts on the rheostat wear, and won't make contact like they have to on the circuit board. Unfortunately this problem requires the tank to be dropped; removal and replacement of the complete fuel pump/ sending unit module that comes as an integrated replacement, as do most vehicles now. It's a tough job, but not impossible. Mine was driving me crazy, so I replaced it with a new updated aftermarket unit that is clearly better than the OEM unit, and cost 1/3 of the standard GM junk that was installed at the factory. Got it on EBAY.
Great van. Good MPG. Comfortable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
