1996 Dodge Grand Caravan ProblemsTiming Cover Oil/Coolant Leaks are Common
Timing cover oil and coolant leaks are common, the oil and coolant don't normally mix. Our technicians recommend to replace the timing chain and cam sprocket if the timing cover is removed to reseal - or for any other reason.
The auxiliary heater hose connections (that are routed to the rear heater under the vehicle) can develop coolant leaks.
Coolant leaks coming from the underbody on vehicles equipped with rear heat/AC are common. The underbody hoses should be inspected as part of regular maintenance. If you drive on roads where salt is prevalent the problem is generally more severe. Some 2005 models are involved in a special service action, no government recall was issued.
