Radiator leak

Asked by May 17, 2017 at 09:19 AM about the 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan 4 Dr SXT Passenger Van Extended

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 05 Grand Caravan is leaking radiator fluid when the fan kicks on, but not any other time.  The leak is coming from the front left, the expansion
tank is dry on the outside and the hose is dry as well.  Both main hoses are fine.  Any suggestions as to what might cause this?

I am guessing the the pressure builds up and leaks through a crack in the radiator which is why it leaks when the fan comes on. Locate the leak and if it is in the radiator you need a new one.

That sounds about right. Thanks.
