Asked by Jul 10, 2016 at 04:07 PM about the 2005 Chrysler Town & Country Touring

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My van is trying to over heat and I dont know why. I replaced the water pump.
my fans work fine. It only seems to be leaking from the AC lines under the
van, and its clear water. Not radiator fluid. Can anybody help me?

If vehicle is overheating and not leaking anti freeze you may want to check your oil level if it is a milky color or oil is over filled on oil dip stick anti freeze is getting in the oil. If so stop driving right away he head gasket is bad.

Craig Pruett Sr

Well I checked the oil its fine not milky color and its at the right full level.


If you add anti freeze and it stops overheating just was low but if it overheats again most likely a bad thermostat and the water you see dripping is just condensation from the evaporator drip pan tube which is normal.

Craig Pruett Sr

I did fill up anti freeze and it stopped over heating but Even not running the AC it still drips water above the AC lines. Is there a drip pan above those lines I just can't see?


Now when you say above the A.C line what do you mean the lines coming out of the fire wall going to the evaporator ?

Craig Pruett Sr

I dont know what all lines are above the A.C line under the passenger side. It does look like its coming from either the evaporator or the lines coming out of the fire wall. Just a guess at this point cause I cant see point for sure.
