  1. sneaky leak

    Ok you were all so helpful last time so I am back. I have something else leaking now think is also coolant. It is not a lot but still I would like my fluids to remain inside where they belong. This one is right behind the bumper, (2) little metal lines going into a bracket on the back of the radiator . I'm not sure what they are or what they are for but something is running down the inside of my bumper. Not sure what I should do it only seems to be leaking when I guess it is running.I put a wrench on the nuts beside the little lines and one I was able to turn ever so slightly the other nothing at all. I let it set a while saw nothing leaking. So I let it idle in the garage a while still no leak so I went and drove around for about 30 minutes and came home still saw nothing leaking so I went to bed and when I got up as soon as I walked out there was a noticeable spot again. I keep a spare jug of coolant since the last problem with the y in the heater hose busting and I checked it, it too is somewhat oily so I think that is what is leaking, but I'm not sure what would cause it or what needs to be done. The lines are on the passenger side near the back of the headlight going into a metal bracket with 2 nuts or bolts. kind of in front of the reservoir right below the big top radiator hose. So any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I apologize for my ignorance, I am learning as I go here.

I don't even know for sure what it is that's leaking. Sorry I'm a dumbass.
  3. HELP

    Thank you all so much for the help and advice. I've got the piece off and given it to my friend to fabricate another. So hopefully by tomorrow I will be back on the road with no more issues. If ever I do have any I know now exactly where to go for advice. Now I just need a forum this good about ungreatful kids...lol

    3.5 v6 yes. And I am using aluminum to replace the Y. I
  5. HELP

    It is the 3 zone ac/heat .No water in the oil Thank goodness. And yes I filled the reservoir and let it idle for about 45 min, I saw no steam no leak until I hit the accelerator slightly and it poured from behind the engine. I have found where it is leaking, the Y connector behind the motor. From what I have read it was a known issue that Dodge resolved in 2009. Mine is a 2010 so that part should not even be on mine right? My guy friend is a journeyman for a metal fabrication company and is going to fabricate the piece out of aluminum once I get it off and he can get the exact measurements. Now I guess my question would be, what would be the best way to get it out of there? IDK if I should try from underneath or lower it off the mounts or remove the intake. I need the cheapest, quickest fix. ,Thank you all so much for your help with this.

  7. HELP

    I just got a 2010 Dodge journey from an individual and I love the thing however I have not even put 1000 miles on it and it is making a tapping noise in the motor and last night when trying to get onto the interstate I gave it more gas than I ever have before and when I did something broke blew out IDK what happened and steam went spewing out. temp gauge went a little bit above normal before I got stopped at the nearest gas station but by no means in the hot range.i let it cool for about an hour and filled the reservoir with coolant. I then drove it home less than a mile where it was steaming again. I left it over night refilled the reservoir today and cranked it let it set in idle for 15-20 min. Nothing happened, as soon as I hit the gas pedal a little woosh fluid poured from the back side of the motor. I can not see what all is back there, I do see a lot of hoses back there. What I need to know is it most likely a hose blown or something simple I could fix myself? Or does it sound like something more serious? Please Please be something cheap and easy to fix. I am on disability and raising my grandkids so any money after bills and neccessities each month is non existent.
