It is normal for a radiator fan to run for 10 minutes or so after the car is off, especially if it's hot outside. It's just trying to cool things down. If it doesn't stop running, then there is most likely a relay problem somewhere. I'm sorry I can't say exactly which one. I think that I've experienced the same problem a few years back. Drove a fair distance and when I shut my Neon off the fan continued to run. I had to leave my vehicle with the fan running hoping that it would stop after things cooled down. When I came back, it was to a dead battery. This problem continued throughout the week. In the end I did change out one of the large black relay fuses under the hood and that solved the problem for me.
The vehicle has to be off the ground preferably on a lift I used two pieces of wire under the hood to hold the radiator in place so it would not drop down suddenly. There is a metal bracket running the length of the bottom of the radiator which actually holds it in place. I can't explain where to begin but your radiator is removed from the bottom of the car. Hope this helps
Yes your thermostat is working if it is drawing coolant after about ten minutes. It depends on the size of your motor to determine how long it should take to hit the right temp for the thermostat to open up so it can send coolant through the system. If it starts within ten minutes your thermostat is working fine
It may NOT be a leaky radiator. However, you may wish to check your upper and lower radiator hoses and tighten all of the fittings (if necessary), and also trace the hoses all the way down to where they meet the engine. Be on the look-out for dry-rot and be looking for spots that might be bulging out. The bulging spots could indicate that the hose is ready to burst. It is best to conduct this inspection while the vehicle IS running and HAS BEEN running for a few minutes so that it is warmed up. BE SURE to be VERY careful because radiator hoses are HOT, and engine compartments are intentionally small. P.s: IF you can identify to the location and actually SEE the steam coming directly from your radiator, then yes, you DO have leak in your radiator.
Make sure all cooling fans around radiator and condenser are running with a/c on and engine running at operating temperature. If ok then most likely cause would be low coolant level or restricted( clogged) radiator. My sisters 91 did the same thing two years ago and it took a new radiator to fix it.
First, start when the engine is cool. The radiator does not have a drain plug. What you do is loosen one of the radiator hoses. Take a garden hose and start putting the water directly into the radiator and turn the van on. Let the water flow throughout the radiator and the motor. Turn on your heater to get the heater components opened and flushed out also. Run the water throughout the radiator for a few minutes. Turn the van off. Turn off the heater. Repeat this step until the water runs clear out of the hose hole that was taken off in the beginning. Next, after you have flushed it twice, connect the hose that you took off. Turn the van on and start adding radiator fluid into the radiator. Don't overfill the radiator. While the van is running, the radiator fluid is being cycled throughout the engine. Watch the level of the radiator fluid and if it goes down, add more fluid. You will repeat this step several times because of all the radiator fluid cycling throughout the motor. You might have a little bit of fluid left, put this into the radiator fluid over flow container on the right side of the motor. Once you have added all of the radiator fluid, keep the van running for about 10 minutes and during this time, turn the heater on. If you find out that the heater is blowing cold air, after the 10 minutes, turn the van off, let it stand for about 5 minutes and turn it back on. The heater should be working now. The van just has to reset everything.
