Since I did the LIM on the Montana I have been watching it like a hawk. Well, for some reason I have had to add coolant. Not a huge amount but enough to worry me. About 10-12oz twice in a week. Well I started it up and let it idle up to temp so I could see if it still had some air bubbles. Opened the taps and got just coolant. When I shut it off I saw a puddle on the driver side of van right under the radiator. Im thinking, "That should not be there, I didnt do any spilling there." I looked underneath and it was coming from above. The upper hose is leaking at the radiator connection. I think it is too far on and its riding up over some plastic at the end. Either that or the plastic is cracked. Now I have to wait for it to cool so I can fix it.

I pulled the hose off, it was not cracked. At the end of the hose connection by the radiator it has some plastic jutting out. I didnt seat it as deeply this time. Ran it to get rid of the air I just introduced and it seems to be fine so far. Time will tell.
