Pressure build up..hose clamped off not sure its suppose to i have the correct radiator for my car

Are your electric fans working properly? Nothing retricting air flow through the radiator? Proper thermostat? Right size radiator cap? All of these will effect the way your cooling system operates. If all of these are good and you still are getting high presure in your radiator, you could possibly have a blown head gasket causing compression to enter the cooling system.

My 98 olsd minivan 3.4 overheats in first 15 min

Air is possibly getting into the system and from what I can tell you should replace the radiator cap. The pressure valve may be bad. Road test the car after you replace the cap and top off the system.

Replaced coolant sensor and thermostat. over heated twice.

make sure you got all of the air bubbles out of the system. also could be a leak from the system or a bad radiator cap. need to presure test the system for this.

Air lock in coolant system

I think I would try getting the radiator flushed and cleaned. Check for blockage. Also you can change your thermostat. Last but not least check the expansion tank cap and make sure it is okay. If everything is okay the cold air could be because of a clog radiator core. Sometimes there could be a partial head gasket breech causing the presure to back up. Do a compression check for each cylinder.

Over heating

Sounds like you blew a head gasket to me. There IS a test procedure that you can do to verify this:

1. remove all the spark plugs.

2. Apply about 90 lbs of constant shop air into each cylinder and watch for air bubbles in the radiator. Perform this on ALL the cylinders one at a time.
