Question about 1998 Chrysler Concorde
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.

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.
