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!

My 2003 dodge grand caravan is leaking water from a line about under the passenger side. Radiator is low. I can see water leaking.


that water could be the condensation line,, if you have had your AC on, water will leak from along the firewall on the passenger side, where the tube runs out of the vehicle. Your radiator could have been low to begin with and when you saw the water leak,, you though that was it. check the puddle,, is it clear water or does it have antifreeze in it? If its clear water chances are , that its just the drip line from your AC, if it does contain antifreeze , check the 2 water hoses that run into the heater core , you can also see where they go into the cab portion of the van, from under the hood,

2002 kia sedona is loosing coolant.....within 2 days after filling the reservoir to FULL, it went a little more than halfway down to low . No leaking on ground. Sometimes smell coolant inside van after...


The heater core is leaking into the heaterbox under the dash. Which is why you smell antifreeze/coolant inside. After a while (if left go too long) you'll notice antifreeze on the floor/carpet and possibly running out from under the vehicle as it flows out of the drain for the air conditioner (the heaterbox has a drain in it to let out the moisture produced by the a/c)

Wet floor passanger side


Air conditioning drain stopped up with debris (leaves,pine straw,sticks). Small tube sticking out from firewall with rubber elbow pointing down behind engine, passenger side. If elbow missing air will cause water to back up into vehicle. Another possibility, if your coolant is low heater core leaking.

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.

Antifreeze/coolant leaking from under passenger side dash


If it's your heater core, unless you're a mechanic you probably should get professional help. The heater core is located on the firewall and many parts need to be replaced to get to it. Do you see water on the floor inside the vehicle, Many times a heater core will leak inside.

Heater core leaks! temp in car interior fluctuates; HELP!


yup, its running to that point before it dripps off. you can bypass the heater core to stop the leaking, but you won't have heat. take the two heater core hoses ( two hoses connected at the fire wall on passenger side) and connect them together. you will need a fitting to connect them with.
