I have become aware of a problem with the intake manifold gaskets on the Chevy Venture. A friend of mine had this problem, and after researching on the internet. I have become aware of a potential problem with this part, which is a major repair. On several internet forums, people have stated that a few dealers have fixed the problem under the waranty clause, even though the waranty has expired. This problem was present when I bought the van. I as of now have not expericed this problem, however, I would like your department to look into this. I still owe $2000 on my Venture, and would hate to have to incurr a repair bill, for something that existed when I purchased the van. Thank you for anything that you may be able to do. I am going to call the dealership to inquire about this potential problem.
