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.

2009 Town and Country will over heat both while driving and while idling. I can't figure out where it's leaking from.


I can only assume that perhaps you have a blown head gasket and the coolant is going out the tail pipe .get the system pressure tested .

Coolant leak but no sign of leak


Do your windows fog up when you use defroster? Any residue on the inside of winshield? Is the carpet damp under either floor mat? These are signs of a leaking heater core. If no to all of these check at tail pipe when running for excessive water (depending on the climate if it's cold out of coarse there will be some condensation) if so does is leave a residue on your hand? This could be the sign of a blown head gasket, blown intake gasket or cracked head. I don't know what engine you have but, Chevy 3.4 engines are known to blow intake gaskets.

I would take a strong look at a headgasket problem. providing there are no visible leaks of coolant. You would notice the fans coming on due to sound or a visual check when motor is hot. You can easily tell if a headgasket is bad by checking the spark plugs, If one or more usually side by side plugs are looking very clean or white compared to the remaining plugs that is a sign of coolant being burned off in that cylinder indicating a bad gasket. also check your oil for a possible milky tanish color,oil level over full, this indicates a bad head gasket also. not necessarily will both happen at same time but it is possible to have both symptons at the same time or one or the other.

No heat


Check the coolant level in the rad and reservoir. If its low most likely a leaking intake gasket. top it up and recheck. If leaks when running the waterpump is most likely leaking. They also have issues with blown headgaskets loosing coolant, (but generally runs very hot).

On our 2005 Town and Country, the heater does not heat up for a long time, then it gets hot and then cold. Occasionally the temperature gage goes to warning light hot but this is about once every 3 to 4...


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.

hi, if your 100% sure that their is no coolant leaking onto the floor then look inside the car where the drivers and passenger feet are if the floor is wet then this means the heater rad is leaking and needs replacing if its dry then this could be a more serious problem now what you need to do is check your oil pull the oil stick out and check for signs of water if water is present then it will look a grey color and this would mean head gasket failure if how ever the oil level is ok and the color is normal then this could indicate that the head gasket has gone and the coolant is being burned out with the engine gasses, you need to get a compression test done and possibly a sniff test to test the coolant for signs of gasses from the engine.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

I have a 2001 Chrysler town and country with a heater problem. all blowers work find but i get very little or no heat. after sometime it will get warm but not enought to warn up the car. any hepl??


This is most likely low coolant level. Have you checked? When the level is too low, hot coolant doesn't circulate through the heater core. If you top it off, it should be throwing heat again. Keep an eye on the level, you may have a leak somewhere. If this isn't it, let me know so I can try to help further.

Low heat condition. Heater goes from hot to cold


A low coolant level can cause this problem. If the coolant is low, look for a leak around the waterpump area. If the leak isn't severe you can just top it off as needed until you have the time and/or money to have it fixed.

Blown head gasket


Look the engine over and see if you can find any external leaks, change the thermostat and make sure that fan(s) are operating.
Check the oil for water...loosing that much, it has to show up somewhere. Blown headgasket usually puts oil in coolant or coolant in oil, causes an external leak from between head and block or goes out through the tailpipe as steam.
look carefully and you will find your problem!!
