Your description sounds like the thermostat is faulty. If the thermostat is stuck closed, there will be no heat for the interior. New thermostat's are occasionally bad, it has happened to me. The coolant is leaking from what tube? You can verify the thermostat operation, but unfortunately you must remove it from the engine (but with your symptoms that is the most logical failure). Put it into room temperature water in a pot on the stove. Heat the water and check the temperature at which it opens. This is a near foolproof check, but some thermostats are hard to tell when they open. You might have to pull it out of the water (use care it will be hot) to observe the open condition. In general 180-190 degrees F will be the temperature (water boils at sea level at 212 F) at which the thing is nearly fully open. But that depends on your exact version. The temperature is stamped on some them. For further advice read through the previous posts on overheating or thermostat replacement. Your description sounds like the thermostat is faulty.

How do you fix overheating on a dodge Ram 250 van?

I'm not a mechanic but, I had to replace my radiator to fix the overheating problem on my 1994.

Flush the coolant first then replace the radiator. Hope this helps.

Why would the radiator fan continue to run after the engine stops after the thermostat was replaced on a 2002 Nissan Altima?

Ingeneral, the fan will run only if the temperature of the radiator is above the normal range. If the fan is running, then the radiator must be over temp unless the radiator fan thermostat or it's relay is defective. If the radiator truly is over temp then you have a larger over-heating problem You state the thermostat was replaced. if you replaced the fan thermostat then either the radiator really is over temp and it is doing what it should, or there is a problem with the thermostat-fan relay or switch. If you replaced the engine thermostat that controls the flow of coolent between the engine and the radiator, then that probably wasn't your problem and you should look elsewhere for an overheating cause. I would start by determining if the engine actually is overheating or not. If it is, I would look for coolent system problems like the engine thermostat (if you didn't replace it already), water pump, leaks, scale build up in the radiator, or blockages in the system. If the engine isn't overheating then I would consentrate on the fan, fan thermostat and relays.

You replaced the thermostat in your 2001 Chevy venture but the van is still overheating the top radiator hose is hard and hot to the touch like the thermostat is not opening up please advise?

The top radiator hose is above the thermostat. If the top radiator hose is hot, the thermostat is opening. The thermostat is not the problem. Perhaps the radiator is clogged up or the water pump is bad. Look elsewhere.

How do you replace the thermostat located on a 1993 Toyota Camry 4 cylinder?

my 1993 Toyota Camry radiator had a hole in it it was overheating. I replaced the radiator. The car is still overheating where is the thermostat located. First, drain your coolant from the radiator. Find your lower radiator hose and follow it to the metal housing. This is the thermostat housing. Remove the 2 nuts with a 10mm wrench. Remove the thermostat and replace with new one and new gasket. Re-install and re-fill your radiator with new coolant. Drive the car with heater running. Allow the engine to cool and top off the radiator. Add coolant to the reservoir to halfway between Full and Low.

If you do not have any external leaks, a head gasket is most likely.
