coolant leak


Asked by Oct 02, 2016 at 10:16 AM about the 2001 Pontiac Grand Am GT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my 2001 grand am was running fine and then one day overheated quickly.
when i pulled over i realized it had dumped all the antifreeze. saw a white
steam coming from under the hood, when i looked the hose furthest
towards the back attached to the coolant tank was split and could not see
what it connected too on the other end of that hose. what could have
caused this to happen, and does anyone know where that hose goes too?

Rubber hoses, dry rot and crack over time. The hose is probably a heater hose and connected to the connection on the firewall or back of engine. Shouldn't be too hard to replace. You might have to remove some parts to access.
