Its possible that it could be the radiator is leaking.On the new plastic radiators they tend to leak at the crimps that tie the plastic part of the radiator to the aluminum fins and the upper part of the radiator.So if none of the hoses aren't leaking then its probably leaking at one of the crimps.

you should be able to see the leak being that the radiator hose is right there around the top where you would fill or check your radiator fluid. you can also google it if you absolutely need a picture like engine specs of your year make and model.

Oil Lead after new radiator and upper hose installation


It sounds like one of the transmission cooling lines is leaking, where they attach to the radiator. There may be a rusty section that was 'bumped' while the hoses were being replaced, causing it to leak. If the section that is leaking is not the fitting at the radiator, but a bit away from it, you can cut the section of tubing at the leak, purchase and slip a section of rubber fuel line over the bad area, clamp both ends with small clamps. Make sure the tranny fluid is at the proper level, don't drive it low.

Leaking radiator fluid where lower hose connects w/core


Hi:

If you have a leak near the lower radiator connection that just started, it is either a failed hose, or possibly a radiator core leak that is dripping down to that area.
If you havent changed your radiator hoses for awhile, and they feel soft, it isn't a bad idea to change them both. If you drain your radiator to change the hoses, this would be a good time to inspect the radiator, and perhaps you will find the source of the leak.

Small coolant leak at front of engine hose area, not always maybe 1 out of 5 times driving to work.


If you can narrow down where the leak is coming from, it will be easier for you to fix, but it is most likely either a minor radiator leak, or your water pump. You can put a can of radiator stop leak in your vehicle, such as bars leak. It wont hurt anything. If the leak continues, and appears to be coming from the engine area, the water pump is failing, but also check around the thermostat housing, near where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine

Is this car not still under warranty? Take it to your Hyundai dealer for repair unless it is out of warranty. In that case replace the upper hose or possible use a different type hose clamp.

Radiator hose 93 chevrolet cavalier not sure if it is upper or lowerthe one cracked comes out of bottom of radiator so i assume it is the lower


depending on how many miles you have on the car i would look at the lower hose first; the other common problem on a 93 cav would be the lower radiator neck or radiator leak; the lower hose has less pressure on it than the upper so sometimes finding the leak can be tricky. with the engine off and cold squeeze the lower hose by the radiator to see if any fluid comes out. otherwise you would have to pressurize the system to find the leak

Oil Leak


The oil leak at bottom of radiator could be oil cooler and/or supply hose. Try check closely for wettest area .
The other leak could be thermostat cover, it only uses a sealing ring and is prone to leaking after time.
