Question about Cars & Trucks
Already changed the thermostat and there is no visual signs of leaking any where else. Seems like the water pump is working but i cant really tell.
Check which way you put the thermostat in. The body of the thermostat has to face the water (in head or block) for the heated water to make it work. In the wrong way and it blocks off the water flow and the care will over heat.

A shotgun approach to repairs can really rack up the bills.
If your symptoms are loss of water and you have replaced the thermostat, you more than likely have an issue with steam. And that steam more than often comes from a bad head gasket. Most head gasket gasket failures seem to be confined to the water side initially, but let it go on bigger damage will occur.
You can buy a litmus test strip to dunk in the coolant. It will indicate if there are exhaust residuals in the water and thus a gasket failure.
However it may just be something simple, given that you have just about replaced everything:
have you given the radiator a good hosing inside and out?
is the radiator fan running when it should be?

Since your blower is working and it is a heat issue,thats where we'll
start,First thing is have you checked the coolant level in the radiator when
engine is cold,make sure it is filled to top,next verify you have coolant in
reserve ,Start your van and get it up to normal operation temperature,If your
heat gauge on the dash works correctly it should be 190 degrees,Now lift the
hood and locate the two heater hoses going into the heater assembly at the fire
wall,Both hoses should be hot to hold on to,if both are hot and no heat inside
your problem will be the blend air door in heater assembly.
if neither hose is that hot you need to replace the thermostat in the engine to get it up to 195 degrees.
if one hose is hot and one is luke warm then the heater core is blocked and to blame. hope this helps you.
