I took my car into the shop today after seeing a pretty good leak under my car. They checked it out and said all they could find was one of the clamps had vibrated loose? I've never heard of that before. Is this common on older cars? Should I have the hoses and clamps all replaced or just keep an eye on it to see if it does it again?

    The is 13 years old. I would hope that all the rubber hoses would have been relaced by now.
    As for the hose clamp vibrating loose, not proable. I think you have another leak that they have not found yet.
