Engine Cooling problem
1990 Dodge Dakota 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 156355 miles
I recently bought a 1990 Dodge Dakota with 156355 miles.
I recently had all the belts, the transmission cooling line, Fan and fan motor, shroud and water pump replaced. As well as a tune up and oil change.
They found a small pressure leak in the radiator so I was going to take it back in and get the radiator replaced. I took it out to get gas. And the temp went high, not spiked but high. At the gas station I noticed that there was antifreeze on the engine block directly behind the water pump.
I topped off the radiator and reservoir.
I was wondering if you all had any idea if this may be a faulty water pump or something else?
Appreciate the assistance.
