Could be thermostat is not opining or water pump is failing. I would start by replacing thermostat if that doesn't help then Replace the heat sensor that tells u temp and when fans should kick on. If Ur still having problems I would replace the water pump. But I highly doubt that it's the water pump. It's either thermostat or sensor.

Overheating! The van has new radiator, fluid, cap, heavy duty water pump, tsat, fan clutch. BTW the heads were redone not to long ago.

Did you change the thermostat? If not opening properly or far enough, that could be the cause of your overheating.

Use heater full blast with windows open to add additional cooling till you locate the source of the problem.

Car overheating

check the water temperature sensor for operation as it controls the current to the ECM that activates the fan relay. When the car gets above 3/4 way on the gauge the fans should be running full time

What make a car run hot

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. If you are low on coolant fluid, it will cause it to overheat. Check your coolant fluid level. If your fans are not working or kicking on, it will cause overheating. If so, check the fuse for them. Check for leaking coolant on your lines. A bad radiator can cause overheating and a bad cap can cause overheating. Make sure the cap is snug. Make sure there are no leaks. Now, the most common issue would be a bad thermostat or a sticking thermostat. Next, I would say would be a bad water pump. Now, it could be the water pump valve or impeller, but that is not common. Also, a bad head gasket can cause overheating. Anyone of these can cause your issue. Check fluid first and fans. You may have a leak or a bad fuse. If the fans do not work, that is probably your problem. They should kick on when the car begins to heat up. If the fuse is good and they still don't work, it is either the wiring or the fan itself. I hope this helps you out. Take care. Rick

After motor has cooled down fill radiator with water till full, look make sure serpentine belt not broke, start engine run about 5 minutes, turn off, let sit 3 minutes, start engine look at temperture gauge is it over half way of gauge, Do you have a fan blade driven by water pump or electric fans?

The car overheated about 2 weeks ago. had no idea why. fluid was full, so we just took out the thermostat temporarily since it is summertime. has been fine since then till tonite when it all of a sudden...

Did you check the fan for normal operation? Does the fan come on if you turn the AC on(Should turn on regardless of engine temp with AC on, otherwise it will turn on and off as needed). Did you check if the radiator was still full any tyme between the previous repair and the overheat? Water pumps on older chrysler and mits products do occaisionally lose impellers.
