I would do a compression test on all cylinders, first.
It is possible that it got hot enough to have melted holes in the pistons, cracked the head, or maybe blown a head gasket.
I would do compression test first.

SOURCE: car overheating

The low speed fan is not working, but the high speed fan is working.
When the car starts to overheat turn the air conditioning on low which will cause the high speed fan to turn on slightly cooling off the engine....

SOURCE: replaced cracked radiator in 2000 Chrysler LHS but car still overheating. What could be the problem?

fix the radiator first.because coolant temperature sensor need to be in antifreeze.when antifreeze get up to 190 degrees. the coolant sensor act as a resistance decrease then the pcm will command cooling fans to run.if antifreeze low the coolant temperature sensor not going to work. engine is going to over heat.

There are way too many possibilities for us to try to start to diagnose your car. . Id check all fuses and fusible links if I were you., Body shops often jump start cars that are in their shops for long periods of time, Jump starting can cause alot of issues.

SOURCE: How do you open the hood when the release cable

You are asking for advice on how to pick a lock when all you have on you is a sausage!!! This in not going to be easy! The cable pulls on a lever which can usually be seen through the radiator grille. The problem here is just about every manufactrer has a different idea where to put the lever, but it is USUALLY in the middle of the hood. If you are very lucky, you will be able to see the end of the lever through the grill and probably see where the cable attaches. Now get out your slotted screwdriver and TRY to move the lever to open the hood. This is not easy. On some vehicles, you can crawl underneath the front on your back and look up to see this mechanism. More and more vehicles have this area closed off by a plastic cover which has to be removed first.... If you have such a cover, hope it is held inplace with slotted screws!

2006 uplander cooling system diagram

Is your coolant boiling over? How hot does the engine get in degrees F? Not counting the temp gage,any signs of overheating? Sometimes when you open the cooling system, you get air in the system that can effect temp gage. You could use a non-contact infrared temp gun on the engine, then compare reading to temp gage. The readings should be close. When it is overheating, are the radiator fan/s on?
Can you check coolant flow through the radiator? I haven't checked to see if you have radiator cap? Sometimes on a cool engine, I remove the thermostat, hook everything up, make sure coolant is full. The coolant flow is instant when you crank or start it because you don't have to wait for engine to warm-up, no thermostat.

Hello, The pressure relief valve is your radiator cap. You have a 2003 Chrysler and two day is 2011, that mean this upper radiator hose has been in service for 8 years now. Most likely the upper radiator hose valid. Sir/Mama, it time for replacement of all hoses and belts. Have the vehicle coolant system flushed and new 50/50 anti-freeze and water installed. Also, maybe a new radiator cap wouldn't hurt either. GB...stewbison

My 2005 Civic overheated for the first time when I was at a light the other day. I turned the car off and opened the hood and of course the first thing I thought it was that I needed coolant and I didn't...

there are two fans one is for radiator and the other is for the a/c condenser. both of them work for their respective system.
hope you did not run the engine long enough to blow the head gasket.
regardless, you need to replace the radiator any way. so that's the first step you need to do and make sure you bleed the air out of the system. no heat is the indication of low coolant or air in the system

Out of the blue it overheated. then was ok for 6

Could be the radiator fans, or it could just be the belt that drives your water pump. Does the engine make a screeching/screaming sound when you start it, or at red lights? If so, that sound is a belt slipping. You might need to adjust the tension, or replace the belt if the surface has become glazed over.

Electric cooling fans will work.

The fans are actuated by coolant temp in the radiator. It is possible to have overheated coolant in the radiator, causing the steam, and your engine not overheating...the temp sensor for your engine is reflecting the engine temp, not the temp of the coolant in the radiator. You problem could be a bad temp sensor at the radiator...not allowing the fans to come on. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

Engine light comes on and says engine overheating

Could be three things: Hopefully the first...
1. radiator fan not blowing. (most likely)
2. Radiator clogged (not likely)
3. Head gasket blown... (very possible)

If #1, system cannot detect fan not blowing. It may be the fuse or the relay switch, disconnecetd wire at fan, or burned-out fan motor.
If #2, Flush radiator
If #3, you will see WHITE smoke out the tailpipe and excessive water drops.
Your new oil will have a "milky" look (check the oil dipstick). That is water.
When engine is COLD, remove radiator cap and start car. You will notice high-pressure "bubbles" squirt out of the radiator, even before the engine warms up.

I hope it is #1. and that this is helpful.

Sounds like you need a temp sensor for the gage. There's 2 under the hood one is a 2 wire in the intake manifold driver's side & a single wire one under the exhaust crossover pipe,also driver's side. You want to change the single wire one. Yes,it's tough. If it's still overheating quick, then it's a head gasket.

My '97 Tahoe overheated and now it won't start

Probably just low on coolant causing air pockets. Start it up with the radiator cap of and add coolant, then check to see if the water pump, intake gaskets, or coolant bypass connector on passenger front corner of the intake manifold is leaking.
