1996 Acura TL Q&A
1996 Acura TL Question: why is my top hose at the radiater swelling up?
could be just a weak hose or headgasket issues.have you overheated car badly? - globalhelper
Weak hose?...replace it first and see if new that fixes your problem. Could be more serious problem like Greg says. - milesauto
Agree with above. Hose has weakened and can't support the radiator pressure anymore. Replace hose and that should resolve problem. Hopefully, this is all it takes unless you are getting too hot. Then you could have another issue. - csubak30
