hey how are you

1- first you need a coolant pressure test , to see if there is any visible leaks :Where did that coolant go that u topped of

2- the coolant system needs drain, flush & bleed afterwards to make there is no air bubble in the system causing internment heat heat ?

3- if sitting on idle , if you give it gas , higher rpm, will the heat increase out of the vents ?

4- what is the mileage on it

Please let me know

Thank You

Mileage is about 88,000. Heat output seems to be steady when I increase rpm. No visible leaks, but I topped it off with 2-3 quarts of antifreeze two days ago and had to add the rest of the gallon when I checked just now.

It's raining outside, so I won't be working on it with a phone call right now. Any further advice welcome.

If you don't see any leaks on the ground , those van has an issue with a leaking heater core.inside the dash, the one that creates the heat

I would do what i mentioned above and retest , drain, coolant flush, reverse flush and bleed system .

if you still losing coolant ,I would look into the heater core

Please let me know if you need anything else on it, just reply back and we will continue
