Question about 1996 Chrysler LHS
The temperature guage has stayed normal, yet coolant was leaking from the reservoir. Every 2-3 days, I'd have to add a considerable amount of anti-freeze to the reservoir, but last Friday, a mechanic examined the inside of the radiator cap and told me that was the problem; the rubber seal had greatly deteriorated and was evidently the original radiator cap (which fits on the reservoir). So I bought a new radiator cap, and took it to them. They refilled with antifreeze (after there was a huge geyser when they took off the old cap too early), and I went on my way merrily, thinking my problem was solved.
That night coming out of the grocery store, I noticed what I thought was an excessive amount of coolant under my car after I had left it parked for an hour or so. I thought it was just evaporation, but tday, two days later, I had driven 4 miles to church, let the car sit for two hours, drove it a couple of miles to a restaurant, when I noticed the heat guage was as far as it could go past the danger zone and my oil indicater was on! I left it to cool while I had lunch. When I refilled the reservoir with antifreeze afterwards, I thought I was set until I could have the mechanic check it again tomorrow. Two miles down the road after the refill, the guage was again past the danger zone, and the oil light indicater was on again!!!!
I've no idea what's going on. Can anyone help me?
