I had this issue about a month ago. I also didn't think it was the reservoir but it did turn out that way. The reservoir abruptly starting totally draining just while sitting in my driveway. The replacement ran me about $120 for labor and parts at my local Dodge dealership.

I would suspect your tank before I suspected the pump. Could be just a tiny fracture in your tank, but it's enough to let the fluid leak through.

I just fixed the same problem on mine. On mine, it was leaking on the bottom of the actual pump. I could never find the actual crack, but I ended up getting some pvc pipe cement and put a couple of coats on the entire bottom and that fixed the leak. It has been good now for about a month.

Ryank, any news on this? Is it fixed or is it still leaking? Inquiring minds want to know.

Mine is leaking as well, started a couple weeks ago. I haven't attempted to fix it yet. If anyone else has had it fixed or fixed it themselves, I'd love to hear about it.

mine is leaking too. It looked like it was leaking where the pump entered the tank. I put an o-ring I had that fit and it seemed to stop until the next day. Now I have to take it all apart again.

Mine is still leak free three months later after coating the pump with pvc pipe cement.
