Q: Car leaking coolant from flange.

asked by on

I am leaking coolant from the lower hose. Maybe the coolant outlet flange needs to be replaced. I can see coolant coming from where the two parts connect.

You may need to have the radiator hose clamp replaced. I have had problems with the spring type connector on the hose. You should change them out to the screw on type clamp. I would recommend having a technician from YourMechanic come inspect your leak and remove the hose clean the fitting and replace the clamp.
