Odds are your electric cooling fan[s] isn't coming on. This fan should only run when the a/c is on or when the engine temperature has reached about 218 degrees. Once the a/c is off or the engine temp drops to about 210 degrees it shuts back off again. It rarely comes on at speeds over about 35 mph because at that speed enough air is forced through the radiator to keep the engine at about 198 degrees. I would start by looking for a blown 30 amp fuse under the hood. There may be two of them marked "Cooling fan 1" and "Cooling fan 2" or something similar. If the fuses are good you could have a faulty cooling fan motor that just isn't running. Hope this helps a bit!

SOURCE: 2000 Chevy Venture not blowing any heat but engine

More then likely, your low on anti-freeze. The heatin system in a car is simple. The motor heats up and uses antifreeze to cool. the warm antifreeze runs through the blower system of the heater. The hot antifreeze heats the blowing chambe which cause the air temp to rise. When the heater blower is engaged, it blows the hot air off the antifreeze chamber and warms the car. When your low on antifreeze, the car doesn't have enough fluid to keep the motor cool, and theres also not enough fluid to warm the blowers chamber. Just check your fluid and add accordingly, make sure to add antifreeze of about a 50/50 mixture. You can buy it premixed if your not crasy about dilluting it yourself. DON'T USE STRAIGHT WATER! It will corrode the cooling system and lead to EXTREMLY COSTLY repairs.

Same vehicle. I had the #2 rocker arm bolt stripped out. Sounds like the same thing. Not to hard of a fix.... just take time. Or about 300-400 for a mechanic to fix.

Check fluid level in radiator first. If it is full try putting a piece of cardboard in front of radiator and see if it heats up. If that solves the problem most likely the thermostat. Follow the big upper radiator hose back to the engine and the thermostat should be located there under the thermostat housing.

You should probably replace the temperature sensor first, make sure the car is indeed overheating.

If after replacing the temp sensor, and the problem does exist, then buy a flush kit, and back flush the system, it may be clogged.
