leak

Asked by Mar 26, 2015 at 12:36 PM about the 2001 Dodge Dakota 4 Dr SLT Crew Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was driving home tonight when I noticed a funny smell comming from my heater.
Almost smelt like coolant. While I was driving my truck started to squeal almost
like a serpentine belt would. I figured it was my heater so I turned it off and it
stopped. It then began again. now the anti-freeze comes out as soon as it is poured in
by where the water pump is

Sounds like your going to be replacing the water pump. It has a weep hole on the bottom of the casting, bearing fails allowing the coolant to drip. Also the gakset might have let go/failed as well. Check the hoses as well.
