There are a few things that you can check. The freeze plugs that are generally round, can sometimes leak but they usually go out completly and pour antifreeze all over. Another thing to check is all of the hoses and where they connect to the radiator. If none of this is working, please include a better description of where it is leaking from.

My 1999 dodge stratus had a leaking water pump ,& started loosing more & more antifreeze but i was trying to keep as much as i could keep in it to keep it from over heating, but the other nig


I'll answer your other question first - there is no fuel pump shut-off switch on a Dodge.
Yes you may have blown the engine. It may now have a blown head gasket, or a broken timing belt, or various other things.
Someone will need to check compression next, and the condition of the timing belt.
I should tell you the water pump is driven by the timing belt, so if the pump failed, it probably took the timing belt with it.

I was going to replace my timing belt for 2001 dodge neon r/t and the mechanic says I have to replace the water pump as well. Is this correct?


The water pump is driven by the timing belt. Do you have to replace it? No. Is it smart to do so as long as your already paying for most of the labor to replace the timing belt? Yes. Worst case scenario is you don't relace it and then 6 months later it starts leaking or the bearings go bad and you will have to spend the money to pull the timing belt agiain to replace the pump. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

What's the schedule replacement of the timing belt in a 1998 Dodge Neon? Also, when the water pump goes out and coolant is leaking, does the timing belt need to be changed too.


80-100,000 is a good idea. absolutely replace the timing belt at the same time. it'soff anyway and soaked with coolant. cheap insurance!

Where is the water pump located. 1998 dodge neon


The water pump is driven by the timing belt. If its leaking replace it NOW. If the pump locks up, the timing belt will break and your valves will bent. and then the car will not be worth fixing. Replace the pump, belt and the tensioner. Dodge may have a redesigned tensioner and cover, buy all parts from the dealer.

I have a 96 dodge neon and it is leaking antifreeze by the ac compresser and i can't see were it is leaking from also the heater isn't blowing hot air could it be the water pump that is what i think it is


the water pump is behind the timing chain cover. if so replace it ASAP. if you keep driving it, and the water pump locks up, it will wipe out the timing belt, and your engine will be trashed, bent valves. replace the water pump, tensioner, and belt, Chrysler has an updated cover and tensioner kit, use it.

Grinding noise from passenger side engine


The water pump bearings could be going out and they will make a grinding noise.The water pump doesn't always leak when the bearings are going out.
