No heat coming out and van overheating


It could be the thermostat or the water pump. Even if your heater core were plugged, the engine would not overheat from it, you would just have no heat. And if the thermostat were stuck closed, but the heater core was good, you would still get heat from heater while the engine was overheating. So it kind of points toward the water pump, unless neglect had allowed both the heater core to plug and the thermostat to stick closed. I mean neglect from not regularly changing the coolant every two years about.
Overheating can be as simple as a low coolant level, so you should check that, and check for leaks.
Before you go for the cost to replace the water pump, you should first have the system pressure tested, or have a compression test done to check the internal condition of the engine and to make sure you don't have a blown head gasket. Good luck.

Engine Overheats Mercury Villager GS 1997 6 Cyl


Most likely a sticky thermostat, what is happening is that it's staying closed most of the time causing the engine to over heat, eventually it will open allowing the fluid to circulate and cool down from the radiator. I suggest changing the thermostat rather quickly or you could do damage.
There are two hoses coming from the radiator, the thermostat is located on the top hose where it seats on the motor. Usually fairly easy to change only a few bolts, but you will have to drain most of the fluid from the radiator. I also recommend getting some 'indian head' gasket sealer and apply to the motor side of the gasket, not the side that seats onto the thermostat.

Try changing out the thermostat. Sometimes they will not open all the way and it will cause the vehicle to overheat and not start.

Van continues to overheat


Have you checked or tested the water pump? That's probably the only other part involved in cooling.

Good Luck
