Overheating 04 DodgeMiniVan when Idling

My wife used my care totake the grandchildren on a northern vacation. Qhen the van idled, it would overheat causing a coolant loss. She took it to a dealer and they couldn’t find anything wrong. No problem occurs under normal conditions.

This is usually a sign that the cooling fans aren’t working.
