I have a 2006 Chrysler Pacifica 3.5L FWD Touring
I have a coolant leak. When the vehicle cools down coolant will drip from the oil pan. It is trickling down from somewhere. The hoses are ok. I did a pressure test at 17PSI and it took 20 minutes to drop 2PSI. Would a bad water pump on this engine cause coolant to flow toward the bottom of the oil pan.

2nd question
How can I increase my gase mileage. Will airflow devices or gadgets that you clip on the fule line help.

Yes its very possible for the water pump to leak down to the oil pan the pump is behind the timing belt cover. Your best bet if there is no visable leaks or your having trouble seeing where the leak is and suspect the water pump pull off the timing belt cover and see what you can see. As far as clip on gas mileage products I havent personally seen any that really work.
