COOLANT LEAKING FROM HOSE

Postby BUBBACAYMAN » Wed Jul 31, 2013 1:21 pm



I AM BLIND IN ONE EYE SO I CAN'T FIND WHERE THIS HOSE CONNECTS.
I had a coolant leak on the floor, found the resivoir almost empty, so
added antifreeze, still leaking. I removed the front panels and found
a small drop on the right side frame, further found a small rubber hose
behind the frame bar to be leaking the green antifreeze. Does not
look like it was clamped, just fitted over a nipple connection..

BUT I CAN'T FIND WHERE IT GOES, HERE IS PICTURE

Hose was originally behind the up/down frame bar, I
pulled it around to make pic.

I'm gonna guess that it's the overflow drain from the reservoir tank.
Are you running hot or possibly a bad radiator cap/thermostat/water pump/plugged radiators...etc.?

YEP AFTER TEARING EVERYTHING DOWN,,, THE CULPRIT IS A BAD RADIATOR CAP

HAD TO ORDER ONE, BUT THE HOSE IS THE OVERFLOW DRAIN FROM THE RESEVOIR
SO HOPEFULLY THE CAP WILL DO THE TRICK :D :D :D

Stant 11233

Tank you very much for this data. 11233 was an excat fit and actually better than the Honda one. Cheap as well, if you wanna call ten bucks cheap. Still, thanks.
