Antifreeze Dripping

I have an 89 Plymouth Voyager 2.5 turbo. Noticed some antifreeze dripping. Radiator seems ok. All hoses and clamps were recently checked out fine. There is no wet floorboards inside the vehicle to lead to a heater core problem.....any suggestions?

Dripping from where
Have you checked the water pump?

Exactly where is it leaking? Water pump making noise? Squeeking? Can you please locate and give us some more info? Just pray it's not a head gasket! <g>! Good luck and let us know!

Also, if you notice it leaking badly, just fill it up with water & crank the engine. It could be the water pump gasket...but if you replace that, just replace the water pump while you've taken all that apart.

Have the vehicle pressure tested to confirm the location of the leak then you can do the repair.This is if you can not say for sure where it is.

We did have a pressure test done and it looks like the bypass hose was a little bit too short and that's where we were losing antifreeze. Thanks for all the replies ....You guys and gals are awesome
