The mechanic should check the cooling system.Check the thermostat, the radiator ,the radiator fan, the radiator cooling fins ,the water pump and the water jacket.The thermostat is the one that indicates the water temperature as well as help cooling the water too.the radiator you should replace water after flashing it. The radiator fan and the pulley should be check if worn out then repair or replace .the cooling fins give big help to the radiator to cool water going to the radiator .That's why it should be check and if worn out repair or replace .The water pump is the one that makes the water rotate to the entire engine so that water will be cool when it reached the radiator .That is why it should be check if it is stock or worn out then repair or replace .the water jacket is the one that holds the water so that it will not leak or flow .It also have lock ring that makes the jacket tight and hold the jacket so that the water will not spill on the cooling system.Also don't forget to check for some leaks that can be found if there is then repair the leaks .These are the spare parts of the cooling system that should be repaired or be replace if they are worn out or destroyed so that the cooling system will be functioning to prevent over heat . Like wise you also have to check or see if the engine oil is dirty or diluted if so you should change your engine oil , these can also be a problem that could cause engine over heat.

Even with a fully charged battery i need to use a battery pack to start the van when it does start the cooling van comes on for a minute then goes off and that continues


Check rear AC in van and turn it off. Most vans have dual AC. Even if the front AC is off, the rear is still usually on and some vehicles have the cooling fan and condenser fan run together to help with cooling. Check relay and fuse also.

Why is my plymouth mini van transmission slipping? It refused to go into gear after running for half and hour yesterday, I shut it off for a half hour then went in gear and I drove it home ten blocks


The thing that stands out in your complaint is that you were able to let transmission cool down and then shift into gear. That points me to the automatic transmission cooler not functioning due to excessive heat either clogged,leaking,fan not operating, cooling fins packed full of debris all or one could keep fluid from remaining cool enough to operate gears correctly. Hope this points to something obvious for ya

'98 olds silhouette van, cooling fans work when a/c is on but will not work at all when a/c is off


But is the engine overheating ?
Electric cooling fans will sometimes come on after a vehicle is parked,
(It actually heats up when stopped), but not when it is rolling down the road
because the movement is applying some cooling effect to the engine.
\
If the engine is not actually overheating, then the fans may be working
normally. Also, make sure your water/antifreeze mix is correct by using a
specific gravity tester. It is a tube with 4 or 5 balls, some of which will float
to give you a reading. Contrary to popular belief, More is not better when it
comes to antifreeze/coolant. It needs water to work properly. Too strong a
mix will actually make your vehicle run cold so that the temp sensors and
heater will not function properly. The engine will not achieve proper operating
temperature and may actually damage some of the components by running
it cold, affect timing, spark, etc. This could also cause the symptoms you
describe. The engine would not actually reach the proper heat threshold
until you added the extra demand of the AC heat transfer. But the first criteria
would be whether the engine is actually overheating / or in normal range .

My 2002 Montana Van will over heat while idling, once I start driving the temperature gauge will come back to normal. I checked under the hood and the coolant in the reservoir is boiling and the electric...


These fans should turn on at about 220 degrees, give or take a couple, and then turn back off at about 210 degrees.Fans should also come on when engine is idling with the a/c on [provided the a/c works of course] If the fan[s] isn't running and the gauge is over about 3/4 of the way or will go all the way to the end then odds are your fan's aren't capable of working for some reason. The classic symptoms of a cooling fan not working are what you are describing: Cools fine at highway speeds, overheats at slow speeds. I would start by checking the cooling fan fuses located in the underhood fuse panel. I believe they are marked Cooling fan 1 and Cooling fan 2 and both should both be 30 amp fuses. If the fuses are good then you might have problems with the fan motors themselves. Hope this helps you get it working again!

Check to see if the radiator fan is coming on when the van gets hot.If it does not then on a 2.6 liter engine.look on the bottom part of the radiator on drivers side for a fan switch that could be bad and not letting the radiator fan to come on. On a 3.0 liter engine the coolant temperature sensor is screwed into the thermostat housing. And on a 3.3 liter and on a 3.8 liter engine the coolant temperature sensor is screwed into the front cylinder head. Anyone of these can cause the van to run hot and eventually die with no restart until the temperature has cooled down. Check the fan first with two jumper wires from the positive/negative post to the fan connector on a 2.6 liter engine (positive wire to open pin on plug,negative wire to insulated plug side. On all v6 engines hook jumper wires to motor. To the left side will be positive and negative to the right. Do not let both wires touch together while testing. If motor does not respond to direct wiring then replace it. Another thing to look at is the catalytic converter on van. Check the exhaust flow when the van is running cold and again when it gets hot. If the flow starts to slow down when the van gets hot then remove the converter(plugging up). After doing that run the van again to see if the van runs ok. Hope this will help you.

My van over heats only when I run the air conditioner. I changed thermostat, and check all hoses, and water pump.


Make absolutely certain that the radiator cooling fan is cycling on as it should. If not, then test for bad cooling fan relay or motor.
