Leaking Radiator Fluid

Post by izzy08_03 » Tue Nov 01, 2011 6:04 pm

I have a leak somewhere from the top of my radiator. I dont know if the pressure, from the radiator, is making it come out of the hose going to the reservior or if there is enough pressure to do so. Or if my hose is just leaking. I was wondering if you fellow Wingers have had this problem and if so what did you come to a conclusion on? Thanks.

I haven't had any leaks,but the overflow tube should not have any pressure on it.I suspect that the near 30 year old rubber hoses may not be sealing up very good.Change them out.
