You should be able to replace the sections of tubing (available at the auto parts store)
and use radiator type clamps instead of those cheezy factory ones. If the fitting itself
is leaking, you may take it out and use some teflon tape (white plumbers tape)
to make the fitting more secure. If all else fails, I have retapped these with a
pipe tap by having someone hold a vacuum to pull the chips back, then installed
a brass "hose barb" to threaded pipe fitting in place of the original fitting. The pipe tap
size depends on the fitting size itself. (Last one I did was on a ford and that was 1/4
inch pipe tap). You may need to open the hole to 7/16 inch with a drill (Gently of course).
The auto parts store should carry these items as well, but any hardware store should carry
the taps.
Hope this helps.

Why or what are posiabilitys for raideator hoses calapsingon 1996toyta avlon

radiator hoses are know to collapse especially the bottom hose when the radiator cores become blocked or the spring in the hose rusts away and no longer supports the hose.
Hoses should be replaced when they are larger than the hose clip holding them on as this an indication of the binding fabric in the rubber is rotting away and no longer doing the job.

Leak in transmisson line around the trucks radiator

Most likely the rubber hose at the end of the metal trans lines, where they connect to the bottom of radiator
I would disconnect at the trans,cut the rubber hose off,and lay it out on the gound,where you can carefully cut off the furrell and just replace the hose using a clamp on both ends.

I have a leak coming from the area that my lower radiator hose connects to. Not to the radiator but to the engine component. Could it be a seal? The hose connects from the radiator bottom and travels up to...

it connects to the water pump on the front of the engine could be a bad hose or it could be water coming out of the seep hole on the water pump and running down the hose, does this hose have a smaller hose coming off of it in the middle because this connects to the heater if it does.

Hose for antifreeze reservoir 1997 saturn SL2?

There should only be 2 hoses going to the resivoir. A small hose to the top, fender side. And a larger hose bottom toward the engine. There is a coolant level switch on the bottom. If you roll the washer resivoir forward it will lift up out of the way, without un-hooking anything. Hopefully this helps.
