How do I change the hose connector? Where can I find the parts?

Asked by Jan 24, 2014 at 03:52 PM about the 2008 Dodge Avenger SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello,

The car coolant is leaking through the hose connection in the front of the car, at first I
thought the hose was not attached properly. I tried reattaching the hoses but that didn't
work. I brought water and spilled it in and it started leaking through connection itself. It
seems like the connection is broken or something. Any help is appreciated.

Thank you

Usually reattaching doesn't work. The hose is ready to replace. Purchase a new hose and clamp. Refill cooling system with 50/50 coolant and distilled water.

So the connector isn't the issue? While removing the cap I felt the connector move, I can rattle it (not sure if that is the right word). It is not fastened into place. One other reason why I thought I had to change it.
