Leaky antifreeze is one of my pet peeves........let's hope that this radiator was leaking due to age....not head gasket failure......The correct way to do the leak repair would be to either replace the radiator or solder it. If you have the mechanical knowledge of performing a block test then by all means do it before you invest any thing else into it. if not then have a shop do a block test(to test for a failed head gasket) If the block test passes with flying colors then its time to replace that radiator. If you can do it yourself GREAT!!!! make sure ya flush that system also!!! If you can't afford a radiator right now a temporary fix is called Bar's leak...sold at autoparts stores....seals up smaller leaks and such fairly nicely.....but don't think its a PERMANET repair.... well....HOPE I HELPED!!!!

You may have a blown head gasket thatis pressurizing the coolant system-pull radiator cap off and put a pressure gauge on it and see if pressure goes above 17.5lbs-cheers Denny

Antifreeze leak

A can of Bar's Leak (Auto Zone or Advance Auto) will more than likely take care of this if it's a small leak. If not, a good radiator shop can braize it back together or put you a new drain plug in. Hope this helps.

I have smoke/steam coming out of my AC vents on my 2000 dodge durango weather the air is on or not. Only when it gets up to operating temp. There are no other mechanical problems. What could cause this?

a leaking heater core in the dash . does it smell sweet if it does it's antifreeze and steam that's sticky on the window is antifreeze mist coming from the fan blower / your heater core has sprung a leak im sorry to say.

Antfreeze leak not allowing belt to get traction where might the antifreeze be coming from and how can fix it

check all the hoses. next, check the water pump, should be behind the fan. If the bearings have gone bad in the water pump, it can sometimes leak coolant everywhere.

The dodge durango thermostat called for by the dealer is at the temperature of 192 you can solve this problem very simply by instaling a 160 thermostat that can be obtained at any parts store
