I own a 1992 Dodge Caravan. About 2 weeks ago I noticed a green puddle on
the tar driveway. I figured it was from using the AC. But, now I noticed
that the leak is somewhere in the rear of the engine up near the top, as
steam is going from that area from the water and anti-freeze leaking. Last
week a local mechanic thought I
may have overfilled the reserve tank and the excess was leaking out. So, I
went a week without filling the reserve and the reserve went empty. This
morning I put more water in the reserve and this seemed to actually make the
leak worse. So, is there a leak in the back of the engine area (I can't find
any hose or radiator leak up front)? OR
is it possible I am overfilling the radiator reserve tank.
Any info appreciated. Since it is Sunday no mechanic
available to look at it, so I am planning to go see one again tomorrow.
ALSO, I had a new water pump put in 12 months ago, and I can't believe it
would go that fast.
