Question about 1997 Chrysler Town & Country

1 Answer

1999 Chrysler Town and Country 3.8 L

I was driving on the traffic condition, suddenly I hear a puff sound, and saw antifreeze leaks from the radiator. I checked all the fuse relay, and it appear to be fine. I put two new fuse relay on the heating/ac clutch and check to make sure fuse was not burn out. I have replaced the thermostats, however, the temperature gage will go up high until I pull over an turn off the engine for about five to ten minutes, then the temperature go back to normal. I opened the hood up and notice that the radiator cap become loose despite of tighten it and the leak is coming out of the cap and the little hose. I was wondering if anyone has idea about what could be wrong with the van.

What are the hoses that come out of the radiator on a 2002 Chrysler Town and Country

If they are small metal hoses and they are leaking oil, then they are eather engine oil cooling lines or automatic transmission oil cooling lines. If they are larger rubber hoses and are leaking green or red fluid, then they are antifreeze/coolant hoses.

I have a 1999 chry town and country van. Replaced radiator fan, thermostat and fan relay fuse and continues to get hot at times. What could be the problem?

IF your sitting in stop and go traffic with the AC on it will over heat and if the water Pump is weak or about to go out it will overheat. Try having the system power flushed and see if that helps and make sure you are using a 50/50 mix of Antifreeze instead of straight water in the radiator. Also try replacing the radiator cap a weak spring in the cap will allow the water into the overflow bottle too soon causing over flow.

I have a 2006 chrysler town and country and it is losing antifreeze somewhere - can smell it when shutting off vehicle but can't see a leak anywhere. Any ideas? I checked the oil and it looks clear so sure...

Look for traces of a light pink residue around the bottom of the waterpump and the radiator core support. The waterpump is near the firewall on the passenger side. If you still can't find the source of the leak you will have to have the system pressure tested. I hope this helps.
