Question about 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan

2 Answers

I have a 2005 dodge grand caravan and the heat has not been working for a couple weeks now, and now it is leaking a pink fluid from front passenger side, and over heating on the gage but then cooling

So far nothing but my father inlaw is coming to look at it later today

    pressure test the system and check for leaks. on the passenger side outside of the car it maybe a water pump, hose, or head gasket, intake gasket leaking.

THE HEATER CORE AND THE EVAPORATOR FOR THE A/C ARE IN THE SAME UNIT. THE COOLANT FROM THE HEATER CORE IN DRAINING OUT OF THE A/C DRAIN JUST LIKE THE CONDENSATION FROM THE A/C. THE PINK FLUID IS COOLANT.

    KRISTA THE REASON IT HAS STOPPED LEAKING AFTER SITTING IS YOU HAVE RAN OUT OF COOLANT OR THE PRESSURE HAS DROPPED TO THE POINT IT IS NO LONGER LEAKING

If you have a leak inside it may be a heater core problem which can cause all your problems. check it by doing a pressure test on the cooling system.

What is the pink stuff leaking from the heads on my 1997 dodge grand caravan


The only "pink" fluids are:
1. Transmission fluid 2. Power steering fluid 3. Some types of washer fluid (rare) 4. Some types of AntiFreeze-Coolant are red, although most (80%) are lime or yellow/green.
The most common fluid leak from the head is coolant and is usually form a gasket leak. You say heads as in plural, which I take to mean a V6 engine. But since having both head having a leaking gasket is remote I assume that there was a typo and you are referring to one head.
Are you loosing fluid from the radiator and/or having overheating problem, then suspect the head gasket, It is a major repair.
Post comment with additional info, ie exact location of fluid and how much. Is it leaking to the floor? When does it leak the most, standing cold or engine running hot? Doesthe fluid feel oily or more just like water?

2005 grand caravan front heater and defrorst not working ,rear heater is working . i also hear a hissing noice on the passenger side


Just a suspicion: hissing noise comes from failed/jammed/malfunctioning motor to move the door
in the ducting to route heated air to the hoses/ports for "heater" and "defrost."
Problem: failure of motor/linkage to heater/defrost selector door under the dash on the passenger side.
Also sounds like you have not blown fuse to this selector door.
Also - hissing noise could be air being forced against the closed door (which should be open) - in this
case, you'd want to check the fuse to the heater/defroster actuator door.
The rear heater works since its function is not related to the operation of the front heater/defroster.

2005 Grand Caravan has no heat at all - has digital A/C and Heat controls. Engine temp comes up on the gauge so it's not a stuck thermostat


First check the coolant level. If that is ok, then start the van and let it get up to temp. Inspect the passenger side front floor and carpet. You may need to peel back the carpet a bit front the front. Youre looking for coolant coming into the vehicle which is a sign your heater core has failed.
