About 2 months ago my (heater bypass hose?) busted and spilled antifreeze all over. So i had the car towed and later replaced it myself from advance auto. I also filled up the radiator with water to replace what was lost. I didnt put in any antifreeze. It has driven fine, but i never found out why the hose busted. Now the hose in the same place looks soggy and im worried that it might break again. My question is what could be causing this? Should i get a radiator flush, or is this some kind of pressure issue?

Note: It isnt the thermostat because when i put on the heater it blows hot. Ive changed the radiator cap also. Below are pictures of the location of where im talking about...any advice would be GREATLY appreciated, thanks in advance

sometimes I see us in a cymbal splash or in the sound of a car crash

Is the hose rubbing on anything that gets hot? Check for small cuts or melted area's on the hose. If there isn't any then you'll be fine.

no, the hose is fairly new its just where it connects that looks weak,



If that's the case, then you can add some extra zipties for make sure it doesnt go anywhere. It should be fine, just be sure its on nice and snug.

I'd try to replace the hose clamp. Go to a hardware store and get one of these:




It may seal the hose to the radiator better and prevent some of the leaks it appears you're getting.


If this doesn't help then I'd say:

1. There's a tiny hole/crack in your radiator where the hose connects

2. The hose is bad again, for some reason.

There's a petroleum-based fluid leaking onto the hose's exterior causing that. It WILL bust again. Check above it for leaks. Easy solution would be to wrap the end of a new hose in duct tape (sounds redneck, I know) to protect the soft rubber from whatever fluid that may be.

So your saying oil is leaking from somewhere ? Also wouldnt electric tape be better than duct tape?
