Coolant leak near oil pan


I would think maybe the water pump is leaking you will have to put it up on jack stands and wipe everything down under the car. Then if you start it for a minute or two shut it off you should be able to see where it's comming from.

2006 Pacifica 3.5L I have a small coolant leak on the passenger side. The coolant will trickle down and drip from oil pan. The puddle is only 2 inches wide. I did a pressure test at 17PSI and I lost 2PSI...


It is a possibility that the leak may come from bad seals from the water pump or a bad water pump. If you also observe bubble in the coolant inside the radiator when the car is running or water coming out of the exhaust you may have a bad head gasket. The coolant comes out of the bad part of the head gasket near the outside which lets water outside the engine as well.

Water was found leaking from my oil pan and car is overheating. I have a 95 Mazda MX3


Is it leaking FROM the oil pan, or dripping OFF the oil pan?

If its dripping OFF the oil pan, that leads me to beleive you have a coolant leak somewhere. Check the coolant level. Check for leaks.

Check your oil, if the oil is milky/coffee colored. Or if your coolant looks kinda nasty, you may be looking at a headgasket.

IF CAR OVERHEATED AND BOILED IT OUT. SMOKE UNDER THE HOOD CAN ALSO BE CAUSED BY LEAKING VALVE COVERS WHICH CAN BE FIRE HAZARD IF OIL LEAKS ON HOT EXHAUST MANIFOLD.

Don't overfill the coolant resevoir when adding coolant. There is a cold and hot fill line on the resevoir. Excess coolant will spill out through overflow tube on resevoir.
