Antifreeze in oil after changing timing chain on a 2.7L V6

I have a 1998 Chrysler Concorde with a 2.7L V6, we replaced the timing chain and water pump with all new sprockets for everything and new guides for the chain. when we started the vehicle for the first time we noticed antifreeze leaking after running for a little while. upon further inspection we found anti freeze in the oil wen we drained it all out. so we took everything apart again and removed the water pump, we put a new gasket on and placed RTV on both sides of the gasket. we then out everything back together with all the correct torque specs. We had put new oil in to cycle through, when we started the car again we did not have any leaks anywhere so we let it run as we refilled the car with antifreeze. when we went to drain the oil and replace it with fresh oil there was more anti freeze in it. I am confused as to why this is happening and would appreciate any help! Thanks!

SOURCE: Anti-freeze leak

If it's leaking at the top of the engine down. Look at the top of the engine at the front and you'll see a bleeder valve on top a black housing. These housings like to come apart at the glued seams. If it's leaking at the lower part of the engine towards the front, it could be your water pump leaking. Check your oil and if you see the color of the oil looking like chocolate milk, your water pump needs replaced, the oil will need changing as well. Do a coolant system pressure test and see if your hoses somewhere are leaking. Also check for your surge tank leaking. This is the tank that you put coolant into.

SOURCE: How do I set the DOHC's timing on a 2000 Chrysler Concorde 2.7?

There should be plated links on those chains too. There is an index dot in both cams on each head that set at the twelve o'clock position.

If a water pump in a 2004 chrysler pacifica with 3.5l is leaking would it run out right below the crank pulley


This is common water pump failure on the pacifica, the bearings start to leak.
Since it is ran off the timing belt it is very common for the coolant to eat away at the timing belt, once that belt breaks your engine is destroyed.
This is not a repair that is OK to put off, replace the water pump timing belt and tensioner

Slight metal shavings are in oil & minor oil sludge in 2001 chrysler sebring v6 2.7 engine & has random starting failure. Is it worth it to pay high price to replace water pump and timing kit?


i would say the metal is from the bearings. a timing chain would be a waste of effort at this point. if you get a used engine with 70000 miles or more, i would replace the water pump and probly the timing chain.if you get later model engine the flywheel and camshaft gear will have to be changed or it wont run.

How do I replace the waterpump 2000 chrysler concorde engine 2.7. Doe the timeing belt need to be readjusted?


The 2.7 L is a chain driven DOHC engine. No belt. Chain should last the life of the engine.
The 2.7 also has a "bad reputation" for going bad - but this is in almost all cases due to the oil change intervals. Change oil every 5,000 miles and sludge won't build up. Don't change the oil and about 15,000 to 25,000 miles later, <boom> bye bye engine.
Not sure where the water pump is. Never had to replace one yet.

The water pump went out in my chrysler concorde lxi 2004. what all has to be replaced to fix my car. its quite expensive so far and just seeing if they are doing this correctly! alot of different things...


Usually when changing the water pump most shops change the timing belt and also do the timing belt adjustments, the point of it is to change it and do the service because to access the water pump you need to take all of this off and you might as well replace the cheap belt and adjust all the timing while your at it. Otherwise if 10k miles down the road it needed the timing belt job, it would be the same amount in labor all over again.

Oil is smoking near dip stick,won't go over 10 mph, now won't even start.It had been overheating for a while we filled it up with anti freeze 50/50 then the oil started smoking. 1996 chrysler concorde.


you did put the antifreeze mix in the radiator and not in the oil cap didnt you?

Sounds like you put the water where the oil goes!

you may have a jammed thermostat if you didnt do this, or badly out of whack ignition timing.
