The small plastic lines or tubes that carry the hot coolant to the radiator may become brittle and break. Coolant can leak out and cause the engine to overheat.

    First, the reservior plastic end cracked so I put on a new one & it was great, for about 2 wks.. Now, I have a leak from one of the hoses near the battery but lower. I'm taking it to someone this wk, I'm a woman, not a mechanic! Hoping for the best without spending an arm & a leg.
