Upper Radiator Hose
So last Friday my wife was driving to work in our 09 GT, itís a southern car with 88k miles, and she calls me cause itís over heated and she had to stop. Upon investigating I find that the upper radiator hose has popped off, losing all of the coolant, and that the flare at the end of the neck on the radiator has cracked off inside the hose.
I was able to repair it on the spot and refill it with dexcool later that day, so just two hours ago I get the same call from her. Hose popped off again, after running fine for 4 days. Iím headed to work now so I canít spend the day messing with it, but Iím wondering if anyone has any ideas on what the cause could be?
Simply a cracked hose, and without the flare the pressure is too great to keep the hose on? Or could it be something Iím not thinking off? Water pump sounded like it was squealing a little after the original incident, I donít drive it everyday so I donít know if maybe it started sooner.
Thanks for any input
