Question about 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse

1 Answer

Leaking upper radiator hose.

I just had my thermostat changed on my 2004 Chevy Impala 3800 Series II 200 HP. Now it's leaking from the upper radiator hose where the thermostat is housed. It's smoking pretty bad where it hits the engine.It starts smoking once the engine warms up.Are the people who changed it responsible? I just think it is unfair to fix something they should have taken care of. What should I do?

It may be as simple as wiggle the hose & snug the clamp, or snug up bolts at housing.If that doesn't cure it, head over there first chance. Either way, I'd make it over there & let them know. Yes, they should feel responsible to correct the situation.

generally it's easy access if you remove the air filter hose assembly and cover out of the way. if you have a 3800 series engine the throttle linkage bracket should also be loosened and moved aside this should allow you to remove the upper radiator hose and thermostat cover.
