Hello,

I think I may need a new radiator hose. The car was leaking coolant, not a lot seems more like a slow leak. While driving, I heard a pop. The sound wasn't loud,but noticeable. I then pulled into the nearest parking lot, upon checking under hood, I noticed coolant everywhere. The car would not start afterwards, I had to get a tow. I also noticed something disconnected with a hose attached Does this sound like it could be the hose?

Thanks Keena

My car has 88000 miles.
