Question about 2000 Dodge Neon
My car was making a gurgling noise.
When I turned it off all of the coolant poured out. I have tried pouring water into the system to find the leak, but I can't see it anywhere. There are too many parts in the way. I have tried using the mirror, but still can't find it. I am going to go try and look again. I don't have any experience working on cars. I just got interested in it and really want to try and fix this myself if possible. I know I have my limits though. I'm wondering if the water pump is the problem (because of the gurgling noise). Does anyone have any other suggestions?
Neons have had more than their fair share of head gasket problems and I have seen a few cracked heads as well. If you are losing coolant but have not actually seen coolant leaking from the vehicle then a head gasket is most likely the cause. Watch for puffs or clouds of white smoke coming from the tailpipe, thats a good indication. If it is boiling over, blowing coolant out of the recovery tank, you could have a bad thermostat but before taking action on a "best guess, sight unseen" Internet diagnosis you should really have it checked by a pro, or two.
