Could it be that the water pump needs to be replaced? When the van is parked and shut off it completely drains the radiator,after sitting a period of time.

you need to fill it up water 4 now and put a piece of cardboard underneath it large enough to catch drips/pour from radiator to trans then note where leak/s are and report back
without more info it's hard to say could be anything from hole in radiator to freeeze plug leak
