My 02 explorer puked out it's radiator fluid pretty quickly( from what the wife
told me). I went assess, hoping it was overflow. I put more fluid in, and it
immediately poured out the bottom. With all the shrouds, it's hard to locate
the origin of the leak. Does this sound like the pump? Or hose?
Sounds like the lower radiator hose has burst. HTH. -Jim
With the engine cool/cold pour in plain water. If it pours out of the bottom freely, chances are it is the bottom hose. The radiator, if it is bad, is easy to replace.
Hope it's a hose, for it can be pricy if it's something else like a pump or the radiator. If it's a hose, there's sometimes a bulge in the hose before it pops. Have somebody pour water in the radiator wi'l you look for the leeks.
