Question about 1997 Plymouth Breeze
A couple of weeks ago, I replaced the upper radiator hose in my '97 Breeze because it tore open and seemingly spilled out all of my radiator's fluid. Since then, I've had to fill my radiator reservoir up to full three times, which I assumed was the system having to refill itself. However, I noticed today that a small bit of radiator fluid had leaked onto the ground, which was, needless to say, rather distressing. I squeezed my upper hose a bit to check the system's pressure, and it was way too easy to compressnormally, when under pressure, the hose is incredibly hard to squeeze. Is this indicative of a leak in my system?
Hello Jeremiah, I agree you have a leak. The best way to find your leak is to use a cooling system pressure tester. Your leak could be as simple as a loose hose clamp or as complicated as a leaking water pump or a leaking head gasket .
