coolant leak

  1. 5th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2020
    Hey gang, I'm trying to suss out a coolant leak that just developed in my 2013 Caravan. I was hoping the hose clamp was broken near the radiator, but that's not it--the leak is further back. I'm really handy and able to figure some things out so I'm hoping this is something I can fix myself...

    I've noticed a slow loss of coolant from my '05 T&C 3.8. The radiator is about 2 years old, the hoses are also new and tight, but today after a short errand there was a steady leak from right rear of the engine.Couldn't see anything under the hood. I looked at the lower radiator hose, but it's...

    I have coolant leaking from the lines to the rear heater in my 2005 T&C Touring with stow n go seats (I think that affects the routing of these lines) The lines pass down the firewall on the passenger side and then under the passenger seat. I can't see the leak, but can see & feel coolant...

    Background information, after flushing and refilling the coolant system yesterday, I found out my water pump was leaking behind the pulley. My best guess is that the system was never really pressurized after flushing and refilling, and replacing the radiator cap and new thermostat the system was...

    Need Help! My van started leaking coolant from the drivers side of the radiator at the bottom. I could not see where the leak was coming from so I had a professional fix it. He changed the radiator, hoses, thermostat, and radiator cap. When I shut off the car it still leaks a few ounces of...

    I've been hearing the liquid movement behind dash board for a while. This started during rain season so my immediate reaction was the drain hole got plugged, so I proceed to remove the wipers and cowl cover. Once opened, the chamber looks a lot more clear than my bedroom and water bucket...

    It took me a while to figure out where the coolant was going. Now what to do? 2003 Chrysler T&C w/175k. My wife noticed that the heater wasn't blowing hot very well and I found the radiator and overflow both low. Refilled both. Same issue. Did a flush and fill. Coolant low again. I...

    Is a transmission cooler built in to the radiator? I have a 2005 T&C touring, 3.8L V6, long wheelbase (since that seems to make a difference for some things). I've been looking for a new radiator to replace my newly leaking one, just want to make sure I get the right one the first time. I...

    Sorry if this has been asked and answered here, but I couldn't for the life of me find it....maybe cause I don't know exactly what I'm looking at. Anyway, I have a '99 Plymouth grand voyager SE 3.3 with a coolant leak. I replaced the radiator, water pump, and upper and lower hoses last week and...

    On 09-09-2012 I posted a story on Engine Over Heating: http://forum.chryslerminivan.net/showthread.php/24991-Engine-Over-Heating Now, for the rest of the story. I turns out that Chrysler has packaged the heater hoses on the 2008 T&C and perhaps later models. I have attached a PDF of the...

    Hello all, I have an '02 T&C that has recently begun leaking coolant onto the drive/garage floor under the passenger side. It's intermittent..sometimes I can see drips, sometimes not. Sometimes I can actually see it dripping...sometimes not. Seems like I notice drips more when parked on a...

    I began the night thinking I was going to do a complete tear down/head gasket job......as I was taking things apart, it became apparent that the leak was actually coming from the lower intake manifold (poor gasket seal in one corner with signs of/traces of leakage upon removal of the gasket and...
