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.

    Actually, it was the plastic end of the overflow reservoir that broke, stuck in the tube. There was enough slack that I cut that part of the tube and stuck it onto a new overflow reservoir purchased from the local auto part supplier

    I replaced the pulley to the water pump then noticed a leak of anti freeze around that area. When I searched to find the leak I noticed that a thin plastic tube was just hanging. From what I learned, that tube transfer the coolant to the radiator so I'm gonna attempt to repair or replace it so prevent the overheating.
