Car leaks coolan but don't know what the part number is for the small hose
near the reservoir.

1 Answer


Dry rot from heat and time, the hose can crack or develop a small hole. Make sure it's not the reservoir itself. If it's one of the smaller ones, you can buy some hose/tubing or a direct part from any auto parts store to replace.
