COOLANT LEAK

2005 Chrysler Town and Country

Engine Cooling problem
2005 Chrysler Town and Country 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 100000 miles

Is it common for the water pump to fail on this model town and country? It was suggested by a former Chrysler repair person that it does and leaks out the weephole. Can I do this myself?

Hi: I am not aware of this being a common problem. In fact most that I've replaced have had around 80K to 90K on them. If you are getting an aftermarket pump, you may want to select a different brand or purchase one from the dealer. It may be a little more, but it should last longer.

As far as doing it yourself, it is an involved process and I'm not sure what your abilities are.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
