It really depends on why it is leaking. The plastic cooling components are known to become brittle and crack as they age. You'll need to carefully inspect the hose connection and determine if that is where the leak is coming from. You may be able to tighten the hose clamp but you can only tighten those so much because the parts are plastic. Is the hose dry, hard, and/or cracked?
