Coolant leak Sign In

2000 Dodge Caravan Sport 230,000 miles

The engine will overheat after driving it for 15+ miles. The mechanic said it was the water pump, so i replaced the water pump. But its still leaking.

When i pour 2 gallons of coolant in, about 1/4 gallon drips out directly under the radiator cap. It is not the overflow reservoir...that is on the right side of the van near the water pump. This is leaking on the left side of the car under the radiator cap area. I can then drive it again for a 15-30 miles until i have to put more in it.

You're going to have to get more specific than that. You will have to pressure test the cooling system and follow the leak all the way to it's source.
