Antifreeze Leak

105

Asked by May 08, 2009 at 02:25 AM about the 2004 Dodge Caravan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The antifreeze is disappearing in my 2004 Caravan but the engine isn't overheating its not dropping onto the ground or going into the oil so its not an internal head gasket. I don't know if its going into the water pump but occasionally that makes a weird noise when revving up the engine so how can I figure out where the antifreeze is going without paying someone big bucks to say I don't know

Take it to a shop and have them pressure test the coolant system. They normally don't charge much (if anything) to diagnose it.

Hello, I had this problem too with my 3.0. (what's you engine?) Coolant leaked when pressure built, but evaporated with the heat before hitting ground. It was the water pump. Change it before it burns a head gasket and the repair bill goes up.

I have the same issue also. We just had the radiator replaced but it passed the pressure check and still not sure the problem is solved. We just got it out of the shop. That is where we see it on the ground is under the drivers side radiator.

Mine is leaking on the driver's side too. It doesn't leak until it gets hot. Then it leaks fast. Constant stream until the fluid is gone.
