I have a 2000 Chevy venture that is getting hot still even after changing the water pump, radiator, and thermostat. What else could it be?

assuming that you have burped the cooling system properly, it is possible that you have a head gasket problem. There is a combustion leak test that you can perform to check it out. the kit is about 40 bucks and is pretty conclusive. there are some good youtube vids on how to perform the test. it is really pretty easy though.

    Both fans coming on, just replaced thermostat but when we get to the approx 2-3 mile mark it starts to overheat. Could it be air or ECU? This is also a wheelchair accessible van.
