Question about 2005 Chrysler Town & Country
Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
I really think that unless you have over heated and you seen white exaust coming from the back or if you have checked the oil and it is a milky white color than yes you may have a big problem with the head gasket but if none of these are apparent than i would perform a normal inspection of all of the hoses and the overfill tank refilling it then letting it sit and run and see if any thing leaks any where ok. if none found it should be all right
Hope this is very helpful for you .
Best regards Mike

Symptoms of a blown head gasket are hard to miss-overheating, smoke coming out of the exhaust, rough idle, misfire, oil in antifreeze or antifreeze in the oil...you may have a small leak, combined with having not checked your fluid level for an extended period of time. The best course of action is go get the radiator pressure-tested, it will reveal if you have any sort of internal leak in the cooling system or the engine.

I assume you have checked the cooling system to ensure that first, that it is completely full of coolant (not just the overflow tank) and second that there are no leaks anywhere. Your description indicates either low coolant level and/or air locks in the cooling system. Only check coolant level when engine is cold. If it needs topping up, add coolant and then run engine at idle with heat control on full, until it reaches operating temperature, topping up as necessary. Allow cooling fans to cycle on and off a few times to ensure all air is purged from system. If coolant was low, then check regularly when engine is warm to see if you can find where the coolant is leaking. The places where the hoses connect to the metal pipes around the engine are the most likely points of leakage or a hose could have weakened and split.
If coolant level is OK and there are no leaks then it could mean a faulty water pump.
