Hi, first post and it about a problem I have
I own a Dodge Intrepid 2002 with 2,7 l engine.
The colant reservoir tank has cracked and nedds to be replaced.
Now the problem, This car has never been for sale in sweden where i live, (its imported from canada) , but different types of chrysler models have been, so my question is if the colant tank is the same in some other chrysler model so i can do a search for that instead ???
Second question is why does the tank crack ? why doesnt the colant go out through the pipe where the lid is ? , I have checked there is no water in the oil sŚ hopefully the head gasket is not blown , but is there a risk for that anyway ? and that the preasure from the engine goes out in the tank but no coolant water in to engine ?
Why i ask is because the engine feels a liitle jerky and when i trottle down a bit there is black smoke comming out and small black partikels and the fuel consumtion is high
the car has just run 150 000 km (apx 93 000 miles) , there is no sounds and it does not overheat , just a "ping" when coolant level is to low , no warning lights in dash.
any information i can get is helpful
