Radiator/coolant problem/ AC
i have a 2007 ram Hemi 1500. I was noticing i would have coolant all over the hood of my truck randomly. I found out i had a pinhole leak at the top of my radiator. I did not have the money to replace it so i let it go for a bit. I would burn off coolant. i could smell it at idle or after i drove walking around my hood . the overflow tank would always be way low and the radiator would be low. i have never had a problem with it overheating though. My question is, is it just in need of new radiator and a flush or something else? kinda nervous about horror stories about head gaskets and stuff but i dont see anything wrong with the oil or leaking anywhere else. i am pretty sure im just smelling the coolant burning off from the hole. when i got my oil changed the guy didnt know i had a leak but saw i was pretty low and said he though it was holding to much pressure or somewthing.
Side note haha. My AC is not cold. not sure if i have a leak or its just low on coolant and can do a recharge. when i run it when its hot out i get a ton of water dripping on the ground i know this is normal when it actually runs colt but it never does.
As far as your A/C not blowing cold, sounds like the condenser is condensing, but your not getting any cold air. I'd have a qualified A/C shop check it out 1) for pressure and 2) for a bad expansion valve. It may be clogged which would cause high pressure but no cold air.
save yourself the trouble do not put in stop leak, it's the worse thing ever for a coolant system. I am having to flush the block and replace everything in my cooling system because the prior owner used and continued to used stop leak. I am going to assume he never changed the coolant and ran mostly water after a point with it leaking and him topping it off...
This is the results of his mechanical expertise. This crud is caked to everything, hoses, heater core, radiator. I can't imagine how clogged my radiator is.
