SOURCE: need to find the location on 1998 town and country

The main relay is located on the frame rail on the front drivers side. You must lift the car up make sure you use jack stands for safety.Look under the car by the corner of the radiator on the frame rail you will see it must remove the two bolts wich are a little tricky to get too and the plug.[GOOD LUCK]

1998 Chrysler voyager van water leaking form heater core. once water is added in to radiator makes no difference using antifreeze

As long as the coolant is full, You won't have problems with heat. Check the rest of the system for leaks. Can't find a leak and still gets low. 2 possibilities. Heater core is leaking or head gasket is leaking. I would lean towards the heater core because of the water inside.

How to replace a thermostat in a 2005 chrysler town & country

First of all drain the antifreeze by disconnecting the coolant hose. On the driver side of the engine, there is a radiator hose that connects to the engine just under the wires for the spark plugs. There are two bolts. Remove the bolts and pull off the hose. Some coolant will leak. Remove the old thermostat and gasket. Note how the thermostat is oriented so you can replace the same way.Now after the new thermostat is placed,follow this procedure:--Remove the radiator cap and start up the engine. You have to wait for it to become hot for the thermostat to open up and circulate the coolant. Add additional coolant to the radiator. After it is circulating, re-fit the radiator cap and see if the temperature gauge is rising as expected. ------ This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Radiator leaking

That price seem very reasonable to replace the radiator unless you are supplying the parts yourself. If that is parts and labour it is a fair price. It is not an easy job but not what I would consider difficult.
