I have an 01 Venture that I just got (great purchase. Chuckle chuckle). So, I have a problems with the temperature gauge bouncing all over without heat and on other days it works. Apparently this is pretty common and there does not appear to be a solution. So, I was going to "burp" the engine this weekend to see if that would help and now I find that the coolant leaks out almost as fast as I put it in. I am not sure where, but it is leaking out underneath from around the transmission pan. Any ideas? I am thinking head gasket. Yikes. Any help would be appreciated as I am not all that mechanical. Should I try a sealant to see if that works?

Hello -

To better assist you is your model just the Venture, or the LS, or the LT or the Warner Bros. Edition? Also your engine size in liter and the 8th digit of your VIN.

Next, try to get a better visual on the leak. If it is running out as fast as you say is it a freeze plug or spit hose or even the water pump? Again, try to see exactly what it is coming out of.
