Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2000 dodge stratus it blows water
out the tail pipe looks like stop leak in the
water to and it over heats and sucks water
and the water is Rusty but the motor still has
plenty of power wondering what it could be
and would the water pump throw water
threw the tail pipe if its bad?

Your description of the symptoms does sound like engine trouble- and makes me glad I own this old GMC van- thanks! I was feelin' a little down today, you made me realize how lucky I am!
