2000 Chrysler Town and Country Antifreeze leak

The van keeps leaking antifreeze on the ground, on the passenger side of the vehicle. I can see that it is leaking down to the inside of the passenger side wheel well and then dripping to the ground from there.

It is not constant, some days we will have a good amount on the ground, other days very little to none at all. It doesn't appear to be leaking while the car is running, only when it's off.

I top off the reservoir about once every two weeks or so with a 50/50 antifreeze water mix. The radiator itself never seems to be low. It doesn't appear the leak is coming from the reservoir, as I see no coolant or water around the underside of it. The water pump was replaced about a year ago on the vehicle, I can't imagine it going out again.

I simply can't find the source of this leak. Any suggestions?

    ccn7, I didn't have the car when the water pump went out, so I'm not sure how it acted then. I do have the repair records showing the previous owner had it replaced though.



    MrScary, I don't think it would be the thermostat, it doesn't run hot. I'll look into that though, doesn't hurt to rule it out.

Does any of the heater hoses run thru untop of fender well? I never worked on your type of car, but i have worked on some that had the heater hoses that ran thru there might be worth investagating. When the water pump went out the last time did it leak? and if it did was the coolant running down the fender well like it is now?

I would replace the Thermostat and see if that will not Stop this. It is Coming from the Overflow Tank. It is getting a Little Warm during Driving and the Extra Coolant that will Build up Preassure needs somewhere to go So, It sends it to the Overflow Reservoir and it Seeps out the Overflow Outlet. This is Pretty Common though and Really not that Big of a Deal as long as you do not loose too Much. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

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.

Where is the rear heater core located on a 2002 town and country minivan?


hi,
Generally, in motor vehicles, the cabin air fans get the warm air from the same hot water/coolant circulating through the engine.
Surely, the leaking staff is antifreeze from the air blower heater element like a radiator. check the hoses in case of breaking and their joint in case of loose clamps.

Should radiator hoses be easy to squeeze


I have an older Chrysler Town and Country but I had the same problem, I found mine to be a leaking radiator, check all of your hose connections and if you have the flimsy plastic radiator in your van, get the more expensive aluminum version. The plastic radiator melts at the bottom because the are required to be grounded and sometimes this is not done properly, therefore sending an electric current through the radiator melting out the bottom, went through three of these before anyone let me know that they had to be grounded. If there are no leaks under your radiator or hoses, the next thing I would check is your cylinder head the burning smell could be dripping from your head to your exhaust. I would say you have a nice sized leak some where because with these vans if you do not have enough coolant in them they will not produce hot air fill your radiator up with more coolant and then test your heater, it should work but until you find the leak I would make sure to keep extra water/coolant inside the van.

Slow leak of water under car no antifreeze in it no water inside car what can this be


It is normal for all cars that have an air conditioner. It is the condensation of the water in the passenger compartment air.

Like a house window air conditioner, the water collects on a pan and drips out a tube.

I have a 2006 chrysler town and country and it is losing antifreeze somewhere - can smell it when shutting off vehicle but can't see a leak anywhere. Any ideas? I checked the oil and it looks clear so sure...


Look for traces of a light pink residue around the bottom of the waterpump and the radiator core support. The waterpump is near the firewall on the passenger side. If you still can't find the source of the leak you will have to have the system pressure tested. I hope this helps.
