Hi ymhuerta,

You could have a partially blocked radiator. A blown head gasket is another possibility. How does the oil and coolant look? You can check for the presence of combustion gases in the cooling system with a combustion leak detector, available at most auto parts stores (or you could have this done by a radiator shop.

If those checks don't turn up anything, contact one of our tech service reps at www.research@haynes.com. You'll need to give them a little more information though, such as the year and type of van it is, what engine is in it, and what Haynes manual you're using.
