Hey guys i am having an issue with what i am led to believe is the lower radiator hose ! Lately it has been dripping and losing coolant over a period of time and today i got back from driving it and the coolant is dripping much more and faster i had a look and coolant is now coming out from around the band which i think either means the hose it worn on the clamp is buggered !

It is the hose that goes from the bottom of the radiator, under the power steering pump and into the side of the head i know the part that goes into the head just comes off with undoing the clamp but how on earth do you take off the bottom half going into the block?

what the bottom hose on yours is stuffed from power steering fluid getting on it. that needs replacing definately. that goes onto the water pump, the other end goes on the radiator. u may need to get under the car to get at the bottom radiator hose clamp.

The hose cant be expensive though can it? Because i dont mind doing it again down the track as if would have taken ages for the power steering fluid to damage this hose !

So the end that goes into the radiator is just another hose clamp?

the radiator hose will be about $20 but if its leaking power steering fluid then it could cost a bit more.
i did a power steering hose and it cost me $100 for the hose alone.

yeh hoses do get expensive cost me around 150 bucks for hoses without the water pump from ford so add another 70 or so dollars for water pump if not more

but yeh hoses arnt too difficult to get off just undo the clamp as much as u can and wriggle it around alot and it should come lose

Ok just got back from messing around and i took the water pump end of the hose of and the clamp and refitted them as tight and as far up the water pump as i could, so far it doesnt seem to be leaking but i am going to have to go for a drive in a minute to see if it works 100%

make sure u clean up the aluminium on the waterpump too where the hose fits onto, use some steel wool or scourer or something like it, they normally build up crusty oxidisation there. id be fixing that leaking power steering pump too before it wrecks the new hose and also kills the alternator. does the air conditioner/heater work now?

ok bought a new hose for $21 from Motortraders and some new clamps just got home to find out the hose isnt leaking at this current time ! I will wait till i see it leak next time and then i will replace it

Also nope it air con doesn't work shame i got my hopes up ! but i can hear a vaccum leak because the vents at the windscreen are constantly going !

keep trying, dont put too much force on the hose as the radiator tank/outlet is plastic and can crack or break off. maybe use a stanley knife to slice the hose.
