I fill the coolent resevore up and radiator go for a bit of a drive and the coolent isnt comeing out of the resevore into the raidiator wat could it be

why do you keep filling it up? If you overfill either the radiator or the reservoir it is as bad as not filling up...
Is there a temperature issue?
If the reservoir is NOT using, or appearing to 'use' any coolant.. then that is a good thing.. it IS a reserve tank, a reservoir.. tank for overspill and should never be more than 1/3 full..

The heater hose from the heater core to the engine has a tee fitting witch is crimped on to that hose. the nipple to another hose broke off causing the van to overheat. my question to you is how do you fix...

you half to buy a new hose as the presure in that line a clamp will not hold. will hold for few mins but then will blow right off as the presure builds in the engine and the temps of the fluid gets hotter

Legacy estate overheat problems

I would replace the thermostat as a first step. It sounds like the thermostat is not opening after warming up, keeping the coolant from circulating.
