Coolant Leak

Well, I've noticed that I have a coolant leak. From what I can tell, it's the lower big hose on the pass. side of the radiator. However, it leaks off and on, and it started since it's been cold out. I'm kinda wondering why it would leak off and on like that....I'm assuming that the hose connection is fubar but, it's just too stormy out right now for me to go work at it. Just trying to get some ideas....

Thanks,
-clay

Re: Coolant Leak

Take a very good look at where the end tanks are crimped on the core. I have had those leak on more then one vehicle and brand or radiator when it gets really cold.
