Noticed a leak today. 2008 Expedition. Searched around for a diagram to find a part number, but no luck. Anyone know what part this is? Its the T fitting in the pic, circled in red.
Also, any advice on changing it out?
as berry1234 said, its coolant and it will mess up plugs and the COP's. I dont remember the exact price for the hose assembly, but it wasnt much. Once its replaced, be sure to clean up the coolant anywhere you can.
Mine failed catastrophically while towing my boat. Thankfully, it failed right as i was dropping the boat off at the storage yard. You're getting a bit lucky with the telltale leak. Good luck getting it fixed up.
As an installation note, I do not recommend buying the removal tool. All you have to do is push the rubber hose into the aluminum pipes with one hand while pressing the white plastic stoppers with the other and pull back on the rubber hose. The white plastic stopper will stayed on the aluminum pipe and you can remove it afterward. If you look at the new hose assembly, you will understand. Also, I do not recommend draining the coolant; instead, you can just put a pan directly underneath the lower connectors and disconnect those first. All you will lose is the coolant inside the hoses and a little more from the heater core, but the amount is negligible, and does not worth the extra effort.
