Could be the vanos making that crappy noise (which is safe and normal) or u may have a serious problem...cheapest thing to do is try a different oil/higher octane gas and see what happens, if it persists take it back in

My van is making noise like knocking inside the engine & it's getting louder when i'm driving.


knocking noises that get louder and in time with a compression indicates a failing big end or main bearing
for a quick check remove the HT leads one at a time and if the noise goes or reduces then it is a bearing for that piston

Loud whine then knock in overdrive


well, without hearing the noise myself, i could guess that the torque converter clutch might be going bad. the torque converter is the part that transfers the power from the engine to the transmission via viscous fluid motion, the converter also has a clutch that internally provides a direct connection inside the converter for better fuel economy. but as with anything labeled as a clutch, it wears down to a point where is slips. the noise your hear could be the torque converter clutch slipping. i owned a 90 astro van with the same drivetrain that made a noise similar to what you speak of up hills. while driving up hills, fully depress the accelerator and if the clunking noise occurs, then the whine goes away as you accelerate faster in a lower gear, very likely this is the case. you would have to have a transmission shop diagnose further. i drove that old van for five more years cause i didn't want to pay to have transmission repaired. it can be very expensive.

The mechanic should not have drove when the temp when up and he knows that. The heatgasket is probably now blow. This may be up to $600 for them to fix it. Otherwise check radiator hoses.

Fan clutch


Sounds like the fan clutch the way you described it. It could possibly be something else but more than likely the fan clutch. I would have to see it to diagnose more.
