hi all i have just brought a top radiator hose for my xr8, the first one leaked from the metal pipe out of the hose i took it back and now the other one they gave me is doing the same thing, i have just found out that they had them all recalled and they got a new supplier, now the new supplier has the same problem, so if anyone can help im trying to chase up a second hand one that doesnt leak, hope to hear from someone soon thanks.......................

keep trying with new hoses, no point going for second hand! Try a different shop perhaps?

Just take the old hose to a plumbing supply shop and buy a 90 degree threaded spigot 3/8 outside diameter, use a bit of silicon sealant and you're in business! Mine's lasted over 200,000kms - hose is getting a bit soft now-will reuse the fitting on the new hose when I replace it. Total cost including silastic about $9.00, and it doesn't constantly leak and de-pressurise the cooling system.
