About the only things are the thermostat and the water pump.There could be something with the radiator but that is the rarest because the water shoots straight through.If it overheats fairly rapid,it's most likely the thermostat.Sometimes a water pump will let you go 20-30 miles before overheat.The thermostat is cheaper and easier if you're going to try it systematically.Overheat will probably cause the check engine light too.Good luck!

2005 dodge caravan cooling fan works fine with A/C but wont work automatically to cool the engine


? the cooling fan inside the vehicle isnt the same fan that cools the radiator. The AC runs off a compressor pump and the blower motor(fan) distributes it through the vehicle, the blower motor also distributes the heat from the heater core when its set on that. If your motor is overheating and the cooling fan isnt starting the fan itself may be defective or the thermostat that controls it.

2001 grand caravan overheating. then suddenly cool


Change your thermostat before it sticks closed completely. Sticky thermostat is usually the cause.
Another possibility is that your radiator fan temperature switch is going bad. This is usually located next to the upper radiator hose at the gooseneck on your engine where the thermostat is located.
