View Full Version : Radiator hose...

ok , so my upper radiator hose (i think thats what it is) decided to throw itself into the side of a pully and got sliced as i was leaving work today.
i circled the spot in paint where it got hit. right above the 'caution'.

so i have antifreeze all over my engine compartment.
my question is, how would i go about replacing the hose? unclamp the current and slap a new one on? or do i have to drain the radiator so **** doesnt spray everywhere.

lucily i have tomorrow off so i can get it done..

no **** will spray, put a pan underneath your truck, take the old one off, some may come out, then just put the new one on, cake

if you haven't changed our af/coolant check to see if it is due to be changed and kill two birds with one stone

well the coolant still looks good. i just didnt want **** to end up all over everything.

thanks for the replies.
