So I pulled into my driveway and suddenly I hear this hissing sound and see a steady stream of antifreeze pooring onto the ground:angry: Seeing how it was hot I couldn't really see where the leak was coming from but it looked like it was coming from the radiator itself. the leak is coming from the drivers side hose towards the bottom of the radiator. the radiator is 16 yrs old so is it possible that it sprung a leak? If so how hard is it to replace it on a 1994 3.0 vulcan engine? I will check all the hoses as soon as it cools down --anybody have any other ideas where it would be leaking from

Thanks

Nevermind...found the problem, the lower rad hose has a nice slice about 1/2 in back from where it enters the radiator...Oh well I have been dragging my feet about changing out the T-stat anyhow... guess I will do it after I change the lower hose since the coolant will be drained ...I am just glad it wasen't the radiator:D
