/ Van cooling system help
When it was initially repaired, did they put any system cleaner through it?
This stuff does exactly what it says and dissolves gunk, unfortunately, older cars are often only held together by the gunk.
It may be that they've refilled it with new coolant at a higher concentration than before which is now, by the sound of it, successfully finding all the weak spots in your cooling system. The only good news is that it'll eventually stop leaking but you may have to replace a few more bits before that happens. Seems as if you've been particularly unlucky though.
It has never properly redlined and the head gasket is good. After each fix it has been pressure tested fine.
still suspect your head gasket, have they done a sniffer test to detect CO in the coolant?
