it sounds like there is a blockage in the system look for very stiff coolant lines or it coulc be the heater core in the cab or on the fire wall. is the engine getting up to temp ? or is it just not getting hot in the cab?

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.

You may need a new water pump considering the age and if the pump has not been replaced in a while. Try to check also for leaks in the radiator hoses and under the engine. See if you can move or disconnect the radiator hose by hand. If you can, it may need refitting or if the hose is to hard for you to squeeze it may need replacing.
If the hose is ok, when putting in coolant squeeze the hose to get as much air out and observe the engine.
At cold start remove the radiator cap and observe the water while the car idles. If there are bubbles or white smoke from the exhaust. Then you may have a bad head gasket and you are loosing water from the head and it may be going to the exhaust or the cylinder.
