Question about 2002 Chrysler Sebring
Small gasket coolent seepage, just started, on top of the 2.7L Sebring GTC engine. there are 2 hoses ~5/8"od going into a small polymer assembly with a std pneumatic QD fitting on top and one hoseappears to be a resovoir overflow return. It's on the L side(facing)next to the coolent tank. The 2 small ~5/16 bolt heads are very snug. What is this and is it covered by the 7/70,000 warranty. We bought this car new in 2003 and it came with the 2003 7/70 warranty. I have ~62,500 miles on it and have had no problems till now. All proper maintance has been done.
Its probably not covered. depending on which direction your engine is facing there are two different styles of upper radiator hose housings. one is actually called a crossover tube and there is a steel line that goes under the intake to the back of the engine. this requires pulling the upper intake which is no big deal because the gaskets can be reused. if its leaking it does need replaced..
one key note is that if you ever notice coolant coming from the left hand side of the engine behind the alternator, bring it into a shop imidiatly because your water pump is most likley going out. it is timing chain driven and the engine is a high interferance engine. this means that if the chain slips the engine can be ruined for good. plus when the water pump gets bad enough, it leaks coolant into the oil and will cause engine failure quickly. not trying to scare you. the engine is an amazing engine other than that little tid bit.

Replace the water outlet housing. Most likely not covered, but doesn't hurt to ask.
