The only hose at the cap is an overflow hose that just drains to the ground. If you're talking about the upper radiator hose, that goes to the thermostat housing on the front of the engine. Hope this helps.

I am diagnosing overheating and power steering issues on my 2005 KIA Sedona. So far, I have done well by using this site to properly diagnose both issues, however, I'm stuck on one minor detail. I don't...

There are 2 tanks on a radiator. One on top and one at the bottom. They are what seal the top and bottom of the radiator core. You will also find an overflow tank connected by a small hose near the radiator cap that connects to the overflow tank. The overflow tank is where you top up the coolant. One some coolant system, the overflow tank is pressurised and the "radiator" pressure cap is on the overflow tank, on others the radiator pressure cap is on the radiator and the overflow tank is unpressurised.

1. Make sure the engine is cool.
2. Using a clean bucket disconnect the lower radiator hose and carefully drain around 1 gallon off coolant then reconnect hose.
3. Follow the upper radiator hose to the engine where it's connected to the gooseneck on the engine.
4. remove the 2 bolts holding the gooseneck and lift it up to remove the thermostat making a mental note on how it was installed.
5. Clean both sides of the gasket surfaces, install new thermostat in the same position it was removed and replace O ring(only use a Motorcraft replacement to avoid having fit issues) alternate tightening bolts until tight.
6. Refill radiatior to proper level.
7 Leaving the raditor cap off, start the car turn on the heater and let it warm up keeping an eye on the coolant level, it will go down once the air works it's way out of the cooling system.
8. Top off the system and tighten radiator cap. Check the coolant level several times during the week, there may still be some air left in the system.

    Make sure the radiator pressure cap is the correct one and that the hose is not soft--check the lower hose and heater hoses for softness as well. They should be firm, but not hard or cracking. The temperature sensor is reporting normal operating temperature, so it and the thermostat are working correctly (hot water would blow out of the radiator if it were stuck). Check the cooling fan for free turning and no noise. Check it's grounding connection. Check the fuse box for blown fuses to the fan and to the A/C compressor. Make sure all the relays and fuses are firmly pressed into their sockets. Check the A/C compressor clutch winding for resistance--should not read infinity. Does the blower motor for the heater/A/C run when either is turned on? The A/C switch on the dash may be defective.
