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..

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.

Wife has a 2006 Dodge Caravan, she said smoke without a smell was coming from her a/c vents, but only when using outside air not on recir. there was not a sweet smell , or a burning smell, but the outside...


Could be a leaking valve cover gasket or some other leak being picked up at the cowl vent and pumped into the van. Your heater fan fresh air inlet is at your passenger side wiper arm.

Smoke or steam coming from vents, not overheating, codes read 12 and 43.


I think it probably is the heater core leaking.As the water eats up to boiling point small cracks will allow steam to escape. Probably smells like coolant.
