CHEVROLET VENTURE COOLANT PROBLEM

2003 Chevrolet Venture

2003 3.4 liter Venture loosing Coolant. We have been told that there is no leak but the thermostat and temperature sensor need to be replaced. Have been quoted > $500.00. Is this plausible and are the thermostat/temperature sensor replacement possible for a borderline novice?

Hard to comment on prices. Although it doesn't sound right for whatever reason.

I would be more expectant of an intake manifold gasket leak that would run about $800 as a approximation. VERY common on these motors.

Where are you losing the coolant?
External of internal?
