I've a 03 Dakota 3.9 w/ 52k miles on it. I'm finding drops of coolant
under the front of the engine on the garage floor and elsewhere. I
looked up under the engine and found this:
Oil is clean, A/f is not noticeably down (yet). It looks like the
long life dodge orange coolant, the flash kind of intensified it a bit.
As you can see there are a couple of small drops on the transmission
cooler lines, some dried blow-back on the pan, and a little showing on
the steering rack and front framt crossmember.
Streaks on the balancer as you can see.
I looked up and saw a wet patch on the bottom of the waterpump, although
I can't see the weep hole.
So... it appears to me either the water pump gasket, the weep hole, or
The bypass hose appears to be dry as do the input and output hoses and
the tstat gasket.
Thoughts are appreciated,
