    Question Water Outlet Housing Leaking Coolant...

    Has anyone had coolant leaking from the water outlet housing? Mine is leaking and according to what I've been googling, this is a common problem with the V6 engines. This housing is the black plastic housing with a bleeder nut and is located on the end of the top radiator hose (engine side). I noticed I was low on coolant and I saw dry coolant between the heads. I topped it off and after letting it pressurize, it would start leaking very slow from the top of the housing. I know there are two white orings under the housing, but I don't think it's leaking from there. Could this be just a poor Chrysler design? I'd appreciate any information or advice. Thanks in advance.

    Question

    Here is my problem. Everywhere I have been looking for this part like Autozone, Kragen, Carquest, Napa, do not have the water outlet housing I need. The water outlet housing in the picture above is the one they keep offering me. The bleeder on mine is located on the pipe with the temp sensor connector is. It is kind of in the same location, just on the pipe and not on the housing. So if I put this one on my vehicle I would then have two bleeders? Any suggestions? Here are the differences...

    I put the one with the bleeder on mine and still no leaks. Works for me. What negative effect is it to have 2 bleeders?

    Do you have 2 bleeders on yours now that you've had a replacement? I don't think that it would be harmful for your engine two have two bleeders, I just wouldn't like it there if it doesn't have to be there. One is fine, but not two in my opinion.

    well then i guess you will have to pony up at the dealership for the one without the bleeder.

    /\ /\ /\ ditto. the dealership may be your only option to get the exact same part without the bleeder. No one else (aftermarket) sells it that way, that I have been able to find anyway.

    Yes, I have 2 bleeders on mine now. Not that it interferes with the operation of it in anyway.

    Thank you guys for your inputs. I really appreciate it for reals! I was afraid that my only option is the dealership. I guess two bleeders wouldn't be so bad. When I replace this one, I'm going to look into getting one made out of aluminum or some kind of metal to replace this poor design. Glue and plastic doesn't make sense to me and this should be a recall on the V6s as several people are having or have had this issue.
