The battery died in my van. I replaced the battery. When I start it to warm up it starts o.k but as its running you can here it sputter like its going to stall out. when I drive it it loses power and...

This may be caused by the idle air control sticking.
BTW, warming up a modern vehicle for the sake of the engine is not good; driving it off gently will bring it up to operating temperature more quickly and reduce wasted fuel. The engine just shouldn't be operated at high revs right away.

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

Van Sputters And Loses All Power When I Accelerate

Internal combustion engines requires 3 things... fuel, air, and spark. You do not have enough of one or more of these. If the wires and plugs are old, change them.  Air filter, same thing.  Fuel filter can also clog up with stuff after awhile. When you take a look at the air filter check where the air comes from.  It is possible a little critter has built a home and blocked the air flow (rare, but, it has happened).
