If the engine has been running without a leak and now it's started you probably have a bad water pump.AnswerMost likely what you have is blown intake manifold gaskets allowing the leak.The engine will still run smoothly but is allowing water to leak and worst of all,allowing air into the cooling system.This is a problem because these particular engines will not self bleed the air out when you add more water to the radiator.this WILL cause the engine to overheat without warning and ruin an otherwise good engine.PARK the car until the gaskets are changed and cooling system properly bled.I recently changed three of these 3100 sfi engines out for customers due to this problem.
No, but the water pump is usually located near this and that is probably what is leaking. .
the timing could be off. check the timing
heat core. leak. thermostat. no antifreeze.
change your antifreeze fill cap.
Intake manifold gaskets are leaking, intake manifold is warped.
a timing chain has broken
An antifreeze leak.An antifreeze leak.
Perhaps your timing.
antifreeze leaking into the engine base. a cracked clyd. head or blown head gasket is probable cause
A bad head gasket is the most common cause of antifreeze mixing in the oil. The antifreeze will dilute the oil and it will eventually cause your engine to seize up.
No. A worn timing chain or belt would cause timing to jump.
the problem may be that the timing chain or belt has broken
timing belt broken...replacement $800 in shop
The check engine light on a 2000 Plymouth Grand Voyager will come on when an error is detected by the vehicle's computer. The cause can range from low oil to mechanical problems or incorrect timing.
the grand canyon affect the animals because they are losing there home because it is breaking down cause of the water that is around it
Check with ford dealer or you can buy antifreeze that mixes w/ any types of antifreeze - but check first or you can cause problems
If it is leaking antifreeze around the oil pan it probably is either your head gasket or the manifold gasket and the best way for u 2 b able 2 tell the difference from the two is 2 start it up let it run for about 10-15 MINS so that it warms up. Cut it off then check your filler cap and c if its milky if it is its your head
Your intake manifold probably has a crack in the water jacket.
yes it can
Yes timing can delay your acceleration
Rdrah states Green....Sorry, Rdrsh, but you got it wrong. Most 2000 Dodge Grand Caravans will have a collar around the cap, which states it's a special coolant. The coolant that they are referring to is a Red HOAT-type coolant. Do NOT put regular green coolant in the vehicle with this warning collar, 'cause you can damage the engine.
Use the Gold antifreeze. It lasts longer and does not cause corrosion to the cooling system.
YES IT CAN BEND A VALVE WHEN THE TIMING CHAIN BROKE VALVE TRAIN NOT MOVING AND THE CRANK IS STILL MOVING CAUSING PISTON TO COME IN CONTACK WITH THE VALVE THAT WAS OPEN
It should be ok as there is nothing too terrible in the coolant. Excess antifreeze will just overflow. Try and get some out. Antifreeze can cause paint issues if the concentration is high enough...RR
wrong timing can cause any engine to over heat. in fact if the timing is off it can cause hundreds of dollars of damage.
