I own a 1997 dodge RAM van and i'm losing coolant,everytime i've driven it. after being parked,it drains at an alarming rate! And if I don't keep replacing the coolant it overheats. it doesn't smoke or smell...and is running fine besides overheating because its leaking coolant at an alarming rate.

You'll need to inspect the vehicle to see where it is leaking from, it can be coming from many places, but only an inspection will determine that. If you don't know where to take it, please look here: http://repairpal.com/directory

check under the cover /maybe the expansion freeze plugs/att. TEO
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.
