Answers :

This hose, since it is not under pressure, can be spliced. A union may be found in a hardware store or plumbing section of a home improvement center. If you cannot locate a union of the correct outside diameter (OD), the hose can be purchased by the foot at either of these places.
\012Prior to doing any cutting, however, check again at the auto parts store to make sure this hose does not have a replacement. The clerk can help you determine the proper size that will fit.

I am having a coolant leak in my 97 olds aurora, I had the car presure tested results were little to no leaks, I changed the oil and inspected carefully resluts nothing but oil, I am noticing coolant streams in the driver side wheel well so I took the reservoir tank off noticed a hose that looked like the problem replaced it and still no luck the leak is still there.

Coolant runs down the frame rail on the passengers side. I do not see any leaks from the radiator, water pump, and radiator hoses. Since the leak is under the coolant reservoir, my quess is something causing the the resorvoir to overflow or a leak in the bottom seam of the resovoir. Is there a common problem regarding the location of this leak?

I have a 2005 Chevy Cobalt, 2.2L. I am loosing coolant. There are no leaks from the overflow to the radiator, to the block, nor to the heater hoses. I can smell coolant while driving with the heat on. Defrost and heater still work well. Also not over heating while driving. While searching noticed a drain coming out of the Firewall on the passenger side, looks to be where the coolant is coming from. Im guessing it has something to do with the heater core, which I know nothing about. If so


You can buy the replacement heater core at Auto Zone for around $90.00 and they can give you the step by step instructions for you to get the job done with common tools. In the mean time you can add about 3 table spoon of common kitchen Black Pepper ... 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt

I have a small leak from the water pump housing. It appears to be from a small purpose made hole in the casting. Everything appears to function normally, until loss of coolant is excessive.

I have '95 Jeep Grand Cherokee overheats w/6mo. old pump&therm. installed properly by me. No heat coming out of heater. The send hose to heater is under pressure(w/coolant), but it APPEARS to be not so much the return hose. Also, when temp is @220, small squirt of coolant appears from radiator cap.

When I fill up the radiator reserve tank the fluid is coming out of a small, 1/2 inch diameter maybe, black rubber hose sticking out a little from the firewall.

The car smells like something under the hood is overheating. You can smell it around the wheels and the front of the car when you get out but it disappears very quickly as soon as the engine is turned off. No engine lights coming on and 2 mechanics have found no problems with hoses, clamps, etc. and the car runs fine. One guy thought it might be a very small oil leak onto the exhaust but I'm not showing any oil loss on the dip stick and nothing under the car. I did not notice this until I st
