Asked by Jww8882 Apr 05, 2015 at 10:40 AM about the BMW 5 Series

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I bought this car with 70k miles.  I drive it and it runs great with no indication of over
heating.    I shut it down with no issues and when I get back tone car I have all my
coolant on the ground.  Upper radiator hose pops off.  The second time happened even
after I wrenched down the hose as tight as I physically could.   Is this a clamp issue or
indicative of something more significant?

Hi Jim. I thought the male end was not ong enough and has no lip. Is this the wrong radiator you think be ause it does no appear to be busted off. The dang male end is barely long enough to allow the clamp to cover it.
