Overheating and/or Coolant Loss Due to Leaking Quick-Connect Fitting on GMC Yukon Denali

Problem Description and Possible Solution

The quick-connect fittings for the heater hoses tend to leak engine coolant. This problem commonly occurs because the metal housing has become brittle, which can break and cause leaks.
