Hello I have a problem with what looks like to be a major coolant leak, but does not appear to be a head gasket proplem as there is NO coolant in the oil and the van was not smoking white. The leak is from the side of the engine that would be the right side and hardest to reach. What can you give me in the way of hope this can be fixed? The van cannot be driven as the coolant leak seems major. Thanks Mike.

Everything can be fixed. First you need to locate the source. If it is leaking alot, it may be a heater hose. If you lift and support the vehicle, can you see where the coolant is coming from if you are under it?Otherwise it will need to be pressure tested to see where it is coming from. If you remove the air intake boot and air box you may get a little more room to look
