There is a hose that doesn't seem to be attached with clamps and I'm trying to figure out if coolant is possibly leaking from this. Can anyone identify what hose this is? The first picture is the hose (looks like a backward C shape). The second picture is from further away for reference, the square cutout directly in the middle of the picture is where the first picture is taken. The final picture is where one of the coolant leaks seems to be happening.
You didn't post your year. Sounds like throttle body coolant hose. Search this forum. Lots of threads.
I have a small coolant leak that's located towards the driver side about halfway back from the front bumper to where the steering wheel is. I've brought the vehicle to the shop and they pressure tested it a couple of times and said there was no leak and they couldn't seem to visually find the leak. Usually happens after I haven't driven the car for a day or two, and the leak is about 2 tablespoons full and then it ceases. Usually happens right after I shut the car off after driving it for a few miles. Any ideas?
Hey I know this was weeks ago I haven’t been on in a while... yes you have to remove the spindle nut. You need to pry up the locking nuts where they were punched they loosen counterclock wise, they are not self locking nuts as you discribed but do need to be punched with a screwdriver or something to lock them. I have reused the spindle nuts but only a couple times. the whole drum should slide off if not there should be a small spring behind the backing plate you can manipulate to loose the shoes. if you are replacing the shoes and drums you will need to press the bearings and wheel studs out and into the new drums.
