Question about 2001 Chrysler Voyager

1 Answer

Loss of coolant but cannot find leak After being in a mild accident and having the driver side fender replaced, I noticed that our coolant was REALLY low. I didn't think anything about it and added more. About a week or 2 later, I took a look just to be on the safe side, and noticed it was low again. There are no "water" stains under the car when parked. I did a visual check of the engine area when the car was off, and couldn't see any wet spots. Help?

I would say that it's probably one of two possibilities. First, there is the possibility that there is a very fine crack in your radiator or perhaps one of your hoses is leaking that is only allowing a small amount of pressurized vapor out. The other possibility is that perhaps your coolant level was low before the minor accident and that your thermostat is sticking and is allowing the coolant to escape through your coolant over-flow reservoir while driving instead of allowing the coolant to fully circulate through your engine. The only other possibility that I can come up with is only possible if you have rear heater controls that run off of a 2nd heater core. In that case, there would be a couple more hoses to check for leaks. My best suggestion would be to have your coolant system injected with a UV dye and then pressure tested to the proper PSI. If there is a leak in your system, this will find it and tell you the extent of the problem and how much, if at all, it will cost to repair it. Hope this helps! Have a great day!

Coolant leak in cabin - driver's side 2001 306 cabriolet - 2.0 16v


If you have a coolant leak in the car that is caused by a leak in the car's heating system - either the heater core or the associated hoses and connections.

Unfortunately to get at it is a PIA since it is behind the dashboard. A lazy fix is to stop coolant flow into the compartment and the leak will be gone along with the heat - bypass the heater hoses going to core .

I doubt it is the thermostat but it won't hurt to replace it. The water under teh passenger side is most likely the AC drain which should be happening. If you have no leaks on the upper and lower hoses the next place to look is the water Pump itself not circulating the water properly when the vehicle is at idle. It is natural for the temp to rise when sitting in traffic with the AC on because you have less airflow through the radiator. I would replace the thermostat and back flush the radiator under pressure.

Car smells like it is running hot but gauge doesn't show its running hot. I don't see anything leaking from underneath and have checked fluids. Had to have the thermostate replaced a couple of years ago...


This could be due to a leaky heater core. The heater core corrodes and starts with a tiny collant leak that smells collant inside the car and washes out with the A/C water when the A/C is running. This water/coolant mix drips out possibly over the right side exhaust pipe creating the "hot coolant" smell outside. At the begining you won't notice the coolant been lost, but later the loss will be ovious.

1998 cadillac deville leaking coolant, temperature was around 196 and when leaking started temperature has gone as high as 225, what is causing this problem?


This most certainly sounds like a water pump issue. The thermostate is located inside the water pump housing and if the pump is bad you'l lose fluids and need to add every day or so. The temp guage will run hot and often the heater won't warm up. You have even notice fluids on the ground below the front passenger side of the car. Try getting a pressure test first before replacing anything. That's a good place to start the diagnosis.

2005 grand cherokee squealing and loss of coolant


Check belt tension, squeeling is most likely due to belt slippage. Have you noticed any fluid leaking from under your Jeep? Coolant level drop could be from bad water pump, when the pump needs replacing, water flows out of a "weep hole". It could be leaking onto your belt also, causing it to squeel

Bad oil leak driver side front fender


There is an adapter for the oil filter with 2 lines coming out of it above the drive shaft from the transfer case to the front differential. The O ring on these will go sometimes causing loss of oil. Also check the 2 lines for leaks and cracks.
