I was driving and the temperature guage went extremely passed the halfway mark, it was on orange and the light came on, so I sat and let the car cool off and started the car up again after about 45mins-an hour. The gauge was at the halfway mark, so I though I was going to make it home, but only drove it out of one parking lot into another before it over heated again. I sat and let the car cool off and then I popped the hood. (This incident happened on a Friday, but it had not been driven since that Tuesday, and it also had coolant placed in there that Wednesday). As I popped the hood to check how much coolant was left in the car, it was barely any left, I looked up under the car and the coolant was all on the ground. I had a person come give a suggestion as in what it can be, as they had previously went through the same thing with their car (but their car wasnt a Chrysler). They stated it would most likely be the water pump or the hose. I also know that chryslers are not the easiest cars to work with under the hood, and I also know you have to take about 4-5 things out from under the hood in order to get to the water pump, which I can not do. The last time this car was in a shop, it was there for about 7 months, and I'm trying to avoid missing school again because of car issues.
why the coolant is leaking straight through, could it be the hose or water pump? on 1999 Chrysler 300M
pressure test cooling system to find leak
