puddle of coolant under the car

Asked by Mar 30, 2017 at 04:08 PM about the 2008 Dodge Charger R/T

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've changed the fan because it broke off in the
radiator so needless to say the radiator is new as
well now I have a puddle of coolant under the car
all hoses are on tight and it's a stready drip. Any
clue on where it might be coming from

It's a 2.7l sorry should have mentioned that

If it is not the radiator or the hoses it could be the water pump.

And that's in the timing area right?

Check the hoses again. I had a small abrasion caused by a fan belt on a hose. No break was evident and the leak was so small the engine heat evaporated the water. When left in the garage overnight a small puddle of A/F appeared. Gave me a fit checking everything else. In response to your previous question, the shaft that the fan fits on comes out of the water pump. If it is leaking due to failure, it will leak out of a small hole in the bottom of the water pump.
