Help needed solving coolant leak problem
I am leaking a small amount of coolant where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine block. There is a male aluminum part that is bolted to the engine block that connects to the coolant hose and it appears coolant is leaking around this connection.
I am getting a rather frequent squealing sound in my fan belts, most likely caused when coolant drips onto the hose and changes the friction between the belt and sheaves.
I need to fix the coolant leak. I can replace the hose, although I believe this was done about a year ago when I had the water pump changed. I can replace the tension clamp with a worm drive clamp, or I can do more investigation.
Would appreciate any advice anyone has.
