Big coolant leak under passanger side

I HAVE A 98 DODGE NEON AND THERE IS A WATER FALL FROM THE FRONT PART OF THE PASSENGERS SIDE. I PUT COOLANT IN IT AND IT COMES RIGHT OUT. I CANT SEE WHERE IT IS COMING FROM BECAUSE THE CAR SITS SO LOW. IT LOOKS TO BE DRIPPING ABOVE A DEEP SQUARE PAN THAT HAS SOME INDENTIONS ( NOT DENTS) PATTERNS ALL OVER IT. ANYONE HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS? THANK YOU!

From your information it sounds like the water pump is bad. The coolant is running down the engine and dripping off of the oil pan.

95-2001 dodge caravan water pump


For all dodge minivans 94 to 2001 (and others) with 3.0 ltr V-6. You're driving on the freeway your temp gauge starting to go up. You get off the freeway. when the engine is cooled down you discover that the coolant in gone. You refill the radiator and look for a leak but can't find one. You check the oil but its not foamy, so no coolant there. If all seems to be operating normally, check under the vehicle when the engine is warmed up. There may be a slight coolant leak on the passenger side near the front tire .When the water pump on these engines typically coolant will leak out of the pump thru a "weep hole" located at the bottom of the pump. Most of the loss occurs while driving so your only indication may be that small drip of coolant. The water pump is powered by the camshaft timing belt and is located under the timing belt cover and can not be seen, however any coolant leak, no matter how small, in the area just to the rear of the crankshaft pulley is almost surely a failed water pump and must be addressed immediately

Overheating


Was the coolant old and weak? At ten degrees, a weak coolant could result in freezing and that can cause an engine freeze plug to burst open. Check the side of the engine block for signs of leakage around the freeze plugs. Another possibility is the heater hoses. They run along the passenger side of the engine as well. The last possibility is the heater core. If it leaks you may smell coolant inside the passenger compartment. You MAY get a wet floorboard on the passenger side. Coolant leaking from the core usually will fall into the condensation pan for the A/C and run out of the passenger compartment thru the firewall on the passengers side.

What type of coolent does a 2001 saturn SL1 need? I think I accidently put the wrong color coolent in. It has been two months and I am now taking it to get it flushed. Could I have caused any damage...


Putting the wrong color coolant in will not hurt anything, but, the coolant might turn brown if you mixed green and red/orange, flush the system and put green coolant in, it's fine for your car, and yes it sounds like the water pump might be leaking, replace the thermostat at the same time.

My floor board on passenger side is soakin wet thought it might be my drain plug but i cant find it or it might be my heatercoil


If your heater core is leaking, your coolant will be low, and the leak will be antifreeze, not water.
The drain hose should be at the firewall,or lower just in front of where the passengers feet go.

Water on passenger floorboard.


HI. This will occur if the heater core has ruptured(leaking). This will allow for the transfer of coolant onto the passenger side floor. Replacing the core will solve this issue.

Im having a problem with my 2003 Chevy Malibu leaking coolant. What do I do? What do I check? I have no idea where its coming from. I can drive and when I park the car it starts to pour out coolant. I took...


actually it is not good idea to replace your coolant by water only you shoul full your coolant system 50/50 mixture coolant and water because coolant has uniqe smell and color so easier to identified leaks.
first check your oil condition and coolant reservior for any coolont oil mixture for figure out head gaskets condition if you have any oil coolant mixture in oil or coolant you have a blown head gaskets this will send you to mechanic if everthing looks clear then go front driver side bottom of radiator and open the drain **** (make sure car is cool and put container under because coolant is toxic and mess up your drive way )open reservior tab too and drain all the water close back drain **** probably your vehicle prefer dexcool(red color)
fill 3 qt dexcool then water or just buy ready mix run the engine with reservior tab open and check coolont level add more if necesery suquize collont hoses for air inside when engine start hit up close reservior tab. on passanger side front of the engine has a coolant drain plug open with number 8 wrench untill you see the coolant come out( bleed the system for air) make this several times turn on your heat too and bleed again and watch your upper and lover hoses for any visible leaks fallow small coolant lines like under throttle body check thermostat housing under throttle body on 3.4l engines check under radiator if your pressure cab dosen't look good get a new pressure cab .shut of the car and check for leaks once you find out where is leak from easy to fix it.

Water leak passenger side in dodge caravan 2005 carpet soaked


look at the firewall on the engine side and you will see a small stub hose coming out on passenger side about even with the bottom of the heater box inside. that hose drains condensation from the ac...clear it out and you will have a dry floor. (unless heater core is leaking but you didn't mention any overheat or coolant loss so likely that's not a problem)
