2005 Dodge Grand Caravan Q&A
2005 Dodge Grand Caravan Question: coolant leak
I just noticed today that once the car has been driven and engin is hot, there is a small coolant puddle under the car after it has been parked. There is a leak/drip coming down from under the belt area. After a few minutes it stops. I am thinking it is a water pump problem??? The coolant levels are good. What do you think it is? Should it get fixed right away, or if I keep checking the fluid levels can I get a few weeks to worry about it. Thanks. - 2005GCARAVAN
What eng do you have in it. - backyard tech
Had the same problem for a month or so - its the water pump most likely. The water pumps have an inner seal and outer seal, and my mechanic said the inner seal tends to fail. You should be OK for a while if you keep the fluid levels up. Replacement is pricey - the thing is in a difficult place. If you get it replaced, replace the serpentine belt at the same time as you have to remove it anyway. Good luck! - djlee4
