Chevy Venture Van Steering Wheel Problems

Save

The Chevrolet Venture, introduced in 1997, was a four-wheel drive minivan that was intended to replace the Chevrolet Lumina APV. Despite receiving an "outstanding" rating from Edmunds.com, the Venture experienced numerous steering problems until it was discontinued in 2005.

Bushings

  • MSN Auto indicates that a common Venture steering problem is its front lower control arm bushings, which secure the steering rack in place. Over time, factory bushings become corroded and break down. The main indicator of worn-out bushings is poor shock absorption.

Steering Pump

  • The website Auto Recalls For Consumers indicates that another Venture trouble spot is its power steering pump. A faulty power steering pump may cause slight steering wheel vibrations. Additionally, an improperly functioning power steering pump may result in difficulty turning the steering wheel and locking of the wheel.

Solution

  • MSN Auto estimates front and lower bushing arm repair at $170 for parts and labor. According to Repair Pal, power steering pump replacement costs approximately $258 to $366 for parts and labor.
