My van is overheating(boiling) within 10 mi. of driving. Ive replace water pump, completely removed thermostat, and flushed radiator. The transmission isnt shifting into 3rd unless the rpms are way way high and even then it may not shift. Is running in high rpm trying to stay up to speed causeing the overheating...and would a shift selenoid cause the transmission problem?
i have replaced cap,rotor,plugs,crank sensor,cam sensor,ingition coil and the van dies when i'm drivin,usually when i come to a stop,starts cutting out then it will jump back up and and run or sometimes just quits like i turned the key off. any ideas? THANK YOU

the light was not on when we bought it a week ago
my van gets stuck in overdrive when getting on the freeway and will not go pass 60 to 65 miles per hr until it comes out of it, that usaully takes about 5 minutes or more.
Sometimes when I start the engine the blower motor will not come on untill I am going down the road. While I was coming to work it started slowing down by the time I got to work it was just barely blowing and the motor felt pretty hot.Could this be the resistor or motor itslef.
