2000 Plymouth Voyager Overheating

The Van keeps overheating and stays hot we put a new thermostat and a new radiator in it. What else can be the problem? It stays hot and makes an awful sound? You have to let it warm up everytime you leave the house. Sometimes it works and dont overheat but most of the time it overheats and wont cool down until you stop and let it sit forever. Can anyone help me? Thank you.

The radiator cooling fan relay has most likely failed. It is underneath the air cleaner on the frame rail just behind the radiator. NO cooling fan = overheating. This is the first thing i would look at. Best way to tell is when the van gets hot see if the cooling fan is on. You will hear it running if it is coming on. It will set a code for the cooling fan relay also.

I have a 1989 plymouth voyager mini van, It got hot and we put complete new head gaskets on it and another water pump , and a new thermostate. But it still blows water out of radiator and shows hot on heat...

If the thermostat was installed backwards, it won't open when the engine heats up. The spring/sensor should go toward the engine and the valve plate goes toward the radiator. If the hoses stay cold, it points to no water flow as above. Hope this helps!

I have a 1995 plymouth voyager 3.3 liter, i have replaced the serpentine belt, van is still getting hot causing the overflow liquid to get on the pulleys, and then the belt comes off.

separate problems--coolant should not cause belt to come off. Check all pulleys for wobble/looseness.
For overheating, check for leaks, replace thermostat, flush radiator. If these do not work, possible blown head gasket or cracked head.

Van overheating when stuck in traffic fan not coming on changed two sensors engine temperature and temperature controlno change. Fan does work when put power to it externally. Van still overheating when...

u should check for a faulty thermostat first, they are only a few quid and easily replaced. if no change ur most likely faults are a blocked radiator or faulty water pump. u dont sayhow old ur van is but after the thermostat go to the radiator, when its hot check the bottom of the rad to make sure its hot, also brown water means u need to bback flush ur cooling system. even tho u have changed some sensors doesnt mean u got the fan switch sender, dash board sender and fan sender tend to be different sensors, so just double check.

My 1999 plymouth voyager van's radiator fan constantly on

There is a fan relay in the fuse box in the engine compartment. Usually that is the reason why it won't turn off. It fuses in the on position. If you have the manual it will say which one is the fan relay. just pull it out and get a new one. They are not expensive.

Hope this helps

Check to see if the cooling fan is operational. some time the fuse will blow, rendering this fan useless. if it dosen't blow when the cpu tells it to , the engine will not cool correctly. also, make sure the thermostat isn't sticking. there are many defective prats in many stores around. the new thermostat you just purchased may be defective.

Van is overheating and stays hot

first of all make sure that there is no air pockets left in the motor. these will cause an overheat right away.

the way to cure these is run engine with and radaitor funnel and once thermo opens, run the heater on high, this should take about 10 to 15 minutes.

You have a bad water pump!
