If a 1997 Caravan just had the thermostat replaced 2 weeks ago and now there is no heat and the van runs very cold compared to when we just brought it home what is wrong?

Several possibilites. I assume you mean the gauge reads normal, but temp is cold. Cooling system was not bled well when thermostat was changed. Thermostat went bad. New thermostats are not uncommon to be defective. Developed coolant leak and level is now low. heater core plugged up from lack of flushes.

also, the thermostat could have been put in wrong. I have seen this happen before. all other info above is correct.
