Engine Cooling problem
2003 Chrysler 300 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 50,000 miles
for the past year I am adding anti-freeze often to my coolant recovery tank, a splash here and there. If I let it go a while it takes a cup. No coolant in oil or trans don't smell anything and have been under it and no leaks anywhere. No odor from exhaust. Have a new recovery tank and radiator, year old
If it was from the water pump wouldn't I see coolant somewhere. When I let the coolant drop I lost a cup or more and my heat at idle in gear was no as hot as usual, put it in neutral brought up the rpm's and it blew hot. When I got home I let it cool down and brought up the coolant level, the heat was fine. Could it possibly be the recovery tank cap?
