Question about Cars & Trucks
2000 astro van AWD overheated, temp gauge shot to red, stopped running, radiator empty, cranks OK but won't start, no water on engine oil or trans, radiator cap won't hold pressure,
First, find out where that water went....
Fill the system and pop on a new cap, try again.
Look for any sign of water on the spark plugs. (pull them out and look at them)

Did you put a new cap on the radiator? Small as it seems, if it does not provide an adequate seal on the radiator, than the system does not get pressurized, thus keeping the boiling point around 212 deg. your engine gets way hotter than than normally. When sealed right, the pressurized system raises the boiling point to close to 300. thats how is works. If thats not it,(assuming it is the last thing replaced) than you might have either a cracked head/ head gasket/ valve guides, cooling ports, basic large dollar items. Lets hope for your sake the problem is still in the cooling system, before you look at the motor. If you take out the sparkplugs, you'll be able to tell real quick, rusty, burnt whitish-orange looking condition. Good luck

It is located where the big hose comming out of your radiator connects to top of engine. Remove hose from engine your thermostat is undernieth

have you made shure there is fuel in the tank, they had alot of problems wth sending units on that year. if so chances are its the fuel pump. try banging on the bottom of the fuel tank while sombody tries to start the vehicle, if it starts replace fuel pump. faulty regulators will usually cause a very rich running condition.
