It happened to my van a long time ago, after I loosened the gas tank cap, it never happened again. I guess the ventilation or gas tank cap malfunctioned so no air was let in. You can try this one. .

If the Van runs fine for as long as you drive and idle it until you shut it off and try to restart it, it is possibly the egr valve if present. Does it have one and does the van run better after runnning it for a while on the restart?

When you first realized the van was overheating you should have pulled over in a safe spot, shut the engine off and called for assistance. Continuing to drive an over heated engine will lead to catastrophic damage.

It shuts the fuel off if you have an emergency stop, crash, or something like that. Sometimes they just shut off for no real good reason. It is located in the passenger footwell area, probably on the right hand kick panel. Usually a red button but, I'm told some are black.

Why would a 1982 Chevy van not turn off after the ignition is turned off?

It doesn't want to, It's not done running yet... :) Check the ignition timing with a timing gun. When the engine continues to run after it has been shut off the problem is known is dieseling, or pre-ignition. Hope that helps.

Is there a radio fuse for a 97 Caravan other than in the general fuse box?

No there is not another fuse other then the general fuse box.. i also have a 97 caravan sometimes when i turn the van on the wipers and radio will not work i have to shut it off. other times just the radio will not work i just shut it off and restart it.. so far i think i got the problem traced down to either a short somewhere or a computer problem...
