1994 chrysler concorde radiator overflow tank hoses leaking

After driving the car I get a smell of hot radiator fluid coming from the outside passenger side of car. Engine temp is ok. No smell or leaks on inside of car. Tried tracing the radiator overflow hoses leading to the back of the engine but they get lost behind the engine. Have had to refill overflow tank on ocassion. However, don't see any leaks coming from radiator.

Any suggestions?

Also, AC blows hot air. Can this be related to the hot smell coming from front of car.

Help!

It sound like there may be a small leak in the cooling system. You can check this by pressurizing the cooling system. You can buy a pressure checker for about 100 dollars. It will usually show up leaks that are small because you can pressurize the system cold and it won't evaporate.

What do i do to get my 2002 Chrysler Concorde to blow heat?


Check the temp of the two hoses going to the heater core, one should be hotter then the other, if they are both the same of very little difference you have no flow through the core, if there is a heat control valve in the supply or return line it could be bad, or has a vacuum leak so its not actuating if not the core is probably plugged, or could be leaking, but usually you will smell the fluid and/or see a wet spot on the floor.

2004 subaru outback, heating system acting up


Thermostat Stuck on warm up & or you have
a possible head gasket failure & I would suspect
a loss of coolant.

If that is the case, you have a ruined exhaust converter &
O2 sensors as well & a $5,000 plus repair bill coming

OVERFLOW IS BOILING


If the thermostat is not opening, the engine will keep getting hotter as you drive. You could be low on coolant and have air pockets in the system which would cause the temp gauge to not be accurate. Is the radiator fan coming on when the tank is boiling ?

Leaking coolant after radiator replacement


If you are talking about the reservoir that hose is the overflow hose.
Its possible the shop did not release all of the air pockets from the system and some coolant came out with the air bubbles.
The tank should be about half full hot and cold.

2007 Chrysler T&C overflow tank has pressure


Well sounds like you are overfilling the tank. Secondly you would loose pressure and probably over heat if it was your cap. Also check top and bottom hoses going to radiator after it has come to operating temp. If the thermastat has'nt opened one of them will be rock hard. Perferably it be the top hose hard. Check for leaks. Also the overfill tank is going to look low at times cause the engine heats up and water flows into the radiator and when the thermastat closes it back flows back into resorvior making it look low when it is flowing. Also need more input on why this is a problem.

1996 chrysler concorde overheating, not sure where leak is both intake and outtake hoses squeeze so its not rust deposits, just replaced the thermostat a week ago. looking at the engine the leak is...


If you can see it's coming from the coolant reservoir area, it's most likely one of three things. The hose is cracked, plastic tank is cracked, or the hose is disconnected. A crack in the hose will usually only leak when the water is hot from the engine and the heat will force the coolant out of said crack. Try, after filling the tank to the mark, leave the cap off the tank to keep pressure from building, then drive it for a bit to see if it overheats because it can't push coolant out with no pressure from the heat. If it's good, then it's just the crack in tank or hose. Replace whichever one it is or both to be sure.

Overheating,reserve coolant tank boiling I have a 2000 Ford Taurus with the similar problem. I had my water pump replaced then this started.


Ford 2000 Taurus

To solve the problem you have the things to do in this order;

) When the engine is cold top off the radiator with fluid. (When the pump was replaced the fluid should have been also)
) Make sure the radiator fluid has anti-freeze in it. This is also anti boil also !
) Add fluid to the overflow reservoir.
) Make sure the drive belt was replaced on the water pump.
) With the engine running, you can add fluid to the radiator for the first minute or so. You want to get air pockets out.
) Replace radiator cap.
) Let car warm up. When it's hot you should get the radiator fan coming on.
) When it get hotter the air-conditioning fan may come on.
) If the fan does not come on, the heat sensor is probably bad.
) If all fans come on, and it overheats, you may have a bad thermostat. Trace the upper radiator hose to where it connects to the engine. That's where it located.

Do not operate the engine when it overheats, You will damage the head gaskets and cause radiator fluid to leak into the cylinders.
If you smell radiator fluid in the exhaust fumes, it may already be leaking.
