Leak under near rear tire
Noticed smoke coming out of tail pipe. Stopped vehicle only to have smoke come out from under the hood. Car was towed. Cooling system pressure test was done. It was determined that the heater hose assembly needed to be replaced.

Coolant was running on to the floor and forward to the front passenger floor. Initially I thought it was a leak under the dash but traced it back to the rear heater core lines leaking. When I removed the right rear moulding everything was wet. I verified the leak by running the van and witnessing a leak in the lines at the press fittings. I will purchase new lines and replace them
