Question about 1997 Dodge Caravan
I have water leaking from the heater inside the passenger compartment. When I turn the vehicle on, water gushes out from underneath the dashboard. From researching, I assume the problem to be either the heater core or a vavle? Or could it possible be a relay problem preventing a valve from opening or closing? This vehicle also has an elcetrical problem with the interior lights coming on / off and door locks clicking with door ajar message on dash. I am trying to solve this problem also but living with it for the time being but the water problem is primary. Any help would be appreciated.
Your coolant level should be going down too, so to confirm leak at core, check that. Just in case it's water leaking in elsewhere. Can you smell the antifreeze inside? Does it do it even on dry days, no rain?
Double check hose connections are good & tight where they connect to heater core at firewall. Have seen a couple of bad connections allow coolant to leak inward to vehicle. System pressure test will confirm also.
