We ought the van as a program with 20,000 miles on it, within the first month the power windows would not work all the time meaning sometimes they work and sometimes they dont. Same thing for the interior lights. In the summer of 2003 the air condition developed a sloe leak that progressed within weeks, we now have no air at all and the part aloe is going to cost $400. In October of 2003 on our way to a high school football game the transmission went out. There was no warning at all, it had not been leaking or acting up in any way it made a thud sound going down the hiway and that was it..no more transmission $4,000 to repair.

Problem with the head gasket during normal driving condition starting by over heating look like a thermostat problem but is not. Head gasket fail and gas from the cylinders escape to the block of the engine causing to over heat and damage to the engine.
