Over heater when we drive our caravan it overheats. We replaced the thermostat but it seems as if the van belt is not coming on. Need to know where the sensor for the van belts are?

The radiator cooling fan is powered by an electric motor,and is 'controlled' by a temperature sensor/switch mounted to the radiator,thermostat housing,or engine block depending on which engine you have.

00 grand caravan 3.8 over heating and blowing cold air


Have you topped off and bled the air out of the cooling system? Start there. You need a new thermostat and its possible the water pump is failing as well. Your cooling system may need to be flushed. Its also possible that your radiator needs to be replaced. Whatever you do, be sure that you don't drive the van until you've figured out what's going on and have repaired it. These engines are prone to head and head gasket problems (which may also be your issue) but if you catch it early enough and don't overheat severely, you can avoid that too. If you give me some more history I can try to help narrow the problem and come up with a plan of attack. Please let me know how you make out! Thanks and good luck!

2006 Dodge Gr. Caravan. Loud humming noise upon


Misalignment of the belt, incorrect belt, worn or loose tensioner, Too tight of an adjustment (many service centers do this on purpose so when the belt breaks in it becomes properly adjusted, I do not believe in this philosophy), The belt is actually one long belt called a serpentine belt.....

Engine overheats and heater does not blows cold


Replace the Thermostat and check operation.
You may also have to check and replace the Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor located on the backside of the Thermostat Housing.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me on FixYa.com!

I have a 1995 ford windstar that seems to have a temp. problem. While driving the temp. gauge goes all the way to HOT. The van never overheats but the A/C will eventually start blowing warm air. I flushed...


oddly enough it sounds like a transmission problem, get a transmission shop to assess the problem, but first try replacing the thermostat. be sure to turn on the heater when adding antifreeze. I have had this problem with my windstar.

Try changing out the thermostat. Sometimes they will not open all the way and it will cause the vehicle to overheat and not start.
