Temperature Gauge

(2003 Chrysler Town & Country)
in New Castle, PA on March 02, 2009
I have 112K miles on the odometer. The temperature gauge will read hot. I will stop and turn off the van for about 2 minutes, then restart the van and the temp. gauge will come down to normal. The van will not blow any hot air. I'll drive a few miles then the temp. gauge will climb to hot again and I will have to stop and turn off the van, but only for a couple minutes sometimes I can turn it off then back on in less time and the temp gauge will come down to normal but only for a few minutes or so. I have to do this a couple times to get home. I have checked the water level in the radiator and I do have to add coolent. But, the van still will not blow any heat, even after topping off the coolent. What could be causing this?

Sounds like you might have a problem with your thermostat. I would recommend bringing it to a shop for cooling system diagnostics. If the vehicle is overheating it can cause major engine damage. Thermostats generally are not to spendy to replace.
