You should have 2 cooling fans in front of your radiator. These are controlled by the computer. You have a temp sensor that tells the computer when to turn the fans on and off. Your problem could be this sensor. If it quits working properly and lets the engine heat up then the computer will shut off the engine to save the engine. When it cools down, you can start it again.

My van keeps overheating on me and turn off automatically I have to wait a good while for it to turn on


Is there any coolant in the motor. These radiators were a problem for leaking. Also by turning on the AC should turn on both fans.
make sure you get an OEM rad part # *****-*YZZ*-84 or something like that. As it is cheaper. $400 Canadian $$

Hello and welcome to FixYa! If you have overheating problem, it can lead to multipleissues. You may be running on low coolant that's why the vehicle overheats. Ifthat's the case, please add coolant and make sure that it sits on the rightlevel, too much coolant can cause overheating too for coolant will overflow. The vehicle may have a faulty or worn out radiator blowermotor that's why it overheats. If that's the case then you will need a blowermotor replacement to resolve the issue. If the radiator is clogged with dirt and rusts this issueoccurs too. The coolant doesn't flow normally on the cooling system if it'sclogged. If that's the case, I strongly suggest that you have the radiatorflushed to drain out dirt and rusts. If you think that the radiator served youenough then it's better to have it replaced. Please do check the radiator hoses, If you have worn outhoses it can cause coolant leakage which can result to overheating. A tiny holeis good enough for the vehicle to overheat. A faulty thermostat sensor can cause the issue too. If youhave worn out thermostat, the fan may not trigger that's why the fan won't workwhen under stressed conditions. A blown radiator blower fuse can cause thisissue too so I suggest that you check the radiator blower fuse and replace itwhen necessary. What causes the radiator blower fan fuse to blow? It's becauseof a failing radiator blower motor, If that's the case have the radiator blowerfan motor replaced. If the fluid in radiator doesn't circulate then it meansthat you have a blown head gasket or a faulty water pump. I suggest that you gofor the water pump replacement first specially if you think that it's near theend of it's service life. Usually, water pops out the radiator when engine isreved (a sign of faulty water pump and possible blown head gasket). Hope you find this information helpful enough and thank youfor using FixYa! Have a good one!

If the radiator is clogged with dirt and rusts this issue occurs too. The coolant doesn't flow normally on the cooling system if it's clogged.

My 2003 gmc safari cargo van has been trying to overheat when I turn ac on what could it be?


If your gmc safari cargo van overheats when the ac is on, your radiator and cooling system may be clogged and not working at peak efficiency.

Make sure your radiator cooling fan goes on as soon as you turn the a/c on.

CAR OVERHEATS QUICKLY


These are to different problems . The blower is most likely the blower motor resistor. This is common problem the resistor gets hot and starts failing, it also starts to melt the resistors connector. The radiator cooling fans also have a problem with what is called a radiator fan relay.
