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.

    I thought it was the water pump but when I got it diagnosed he said it was a plastic line that was leaking and causing it to over heat. He said that no dealer or parts store carry the part but he could get one on ebay for $238.00 and then there would be the labor. I had to decline and still need it fixed. Can anyone tell me where I can get this part and the name of it. Since it seems like such a common problem.
    Thanks Mike

    Coolent pump was leaking causing the engine to over heat . I got it fixed 470$ . I was driving at around 75 miles and the car accelerated and went 110 i had my foot on the breakes pulling the emergency handle. I finally got the car to stop. Turned the car off and didnt wanna start after an hour of being on i95 . my car turned on and worked perfectly. Then after only 92,miles my transmission blew out ! My car moves like if its on nutrual and makes loud noises when i change gears .the car doesint move. Ive contacted corprate , i cant afford this. Its my first car im only 19 . I dont know what to do
