I just come back from doing some things during the day with the kids. After I read the responses, I immediately went outside and took a look at the return heater hose. THERE IS some coolant under it. It was bone dry yesterday. The passenger side is dry.
I did not drive the car today, I just moved the car this morning and put it in the garage, it has been raining all day long today here in Florida.
Since Jeff mentioned an O ring in conjuction with the clamp to seal the hose. I do not remember a O ring being there.
May be all I need now is a $1 part instead of $1,500. I have my fingers crossed.
I will get that O ring tomorrow and see what happens...Anybody has a part number by any chance?
Thank you to everybody that responded!
