SOURCE: Dodge 2002 Grand Caravan V6 3.3 engine overheating/no cabin heat.

Replace the bad radiator hose first.  Second- get you special formulated anti-freeze dye from the auto store and pour it into the radiator.  Third- make sure you got all the air pockets out of your system, cause the coolant system won't work with air pockets in it.  Fourth- Check for leaks by looking for the colored dye.  If it's not the radiator hose, then could possibly be a pin hole in your radiator.  Would suggest replacing all the radiator hoses at the same time while you got the coolant system disconnected, cause you don't want to have to come back and replace another hose in a few months.

My 99 dodge caravan drove it today and it barely would go and was smoking what could it be


First you need to be sure if it is smoke or steam..Set parking brake ..,Get safety glasses .and safety mask for breathing..Is the smoke from the tailpipe or elsewhere ..,or is it smoking everywhere..?..Is it leaking anywhere.How many miles are on the van and what engine size..?..Make sure engine is cold for safety..Check coolant level...You can smell the coolant mix if it is steam...If it is smoke you can smell burning oil/fuel combination...If it is steam more than likely it is the head gasket and or possible cracked head or block in worse conditions..Some head gasket failures can leak outside of the engine .however it is rare...Check oil level and see if coolant/h20 mix is mixed with the oil...If it is it should show nasty color and or appear to be overfilled considering how long the failure has happened...If it is smoke it can be a few problems....valve seals..,clogged catalytic failure ..etc...Please send more info if possible And I will guide you through troubleshooting your system.....Thanks..

How come it smoke smell like rages burning


Often times your engine , once overheated, will take time to return to normal....the high temps of your engine,will cause burnt odors due to old oil residues, anti freeze overflow etc..sometimes a simple engine cleansing will help to eliminate these odors..take care not to spill any liquids such as oil, antifreeze, power steering , brake or transmission fluids onto your engine....good luck

After changing thermosat car is now smoking a lillte from the driver side radiator area


Smoking where.? tail pipe end.?
over heats, when, moving at 60mph
or only stopped.?
if that smoke is during a hot running motor, and is steam
the head gasket blew (or worse)
oil smoke burnt lingers a long time, steam goes away fast like tea pot.
smoke smells like burned oil, steam smells disgusting sweet due to
the coolant is 1/2 Glycol.
over heating has many reasons.
only stopped?, bad rad, bad pump, bad stat, bad fan clutch.(or elect fan)
fails to over heat moving, usually is bad fan (action)
steam at tail is coolant burning.

Dodge caravan 2001 blowing burning power steering fluid.


I can answer some of your questions without being there in person.
The smell inside the van is from fresh air entering the venting system. Not sure why you don't get it from all vents. The fresh air intake is in front of the windshield and will pick up any smells from the engine compartment.
Loosing the serpentine belt would not necessarily cause you to loose ps fluid, but having a leak could drain the pump and damage the bearings in the pump, causing the pump pulley to drag on the belt.
The ps pump could be in the final stage of failing.
And the shaft seal in the pump could be leaking fluid onto the engine and exhaust.

My 95 chevy van smells like its burning oil and smokeing out the tail pipe


Sounds like you may have a huge oil leak, this is a common problem if the chain is not done correctly on the chevy V6 or V8 engine. Go under and look, bet oil is all over the place and getting on the exhaust.

I have a 2000 passat b2b motion the emissions workshop light on,have been told it is the cam shaft censor. yesterday I started smelling a burning smell (can't tell wether it is an antifreeze or oil...


To me antifreeze smells like cat wee but look for oil leaking from there on to the exhaust. I would assume something is leaking on to the exhaust then burning off

Gasket/O-ring bad on the oil fill cap. The fan is throwing it around where you've found the excess.
