Don't let this hose leak for long! :nono: When my 'lil bro bought his car, this hose was going bad. He was trying to drive it home from PA to IN and he stopped at a rest stop for a break. Some guy said "is that your Toyota smoking?" and he said yes. He casually walks over and pops the hatch, gets a gallon of Toyota red coolant to top it off. He pops the hood, and is greated by a small flame coming from behind the exhaust manifold. :eek: Not thinking, he dumps the coolant on fire to put it out. NOTE: Coolant is flamable. The coolant makes the fire much bigger. :slap: He then drops the coolant and pours his rest area $1.50 Mountain Dew on the fire. :laugh: He got the fire out and nursed it on home and immediately tore it down in my garage. Just don't want anyone to have a close call like he did. Good luck and change that puppy....
