Radiator hose leak
The lower radiator hose just started leaking so I drained the radiator and replaced both the lower and upper hoses with new ones that I bought from Auto Zone. I refilled the coolant and took it for a drive around the block. Everything was fine until I got home and shut off the engine. Now steam was blowing out of the radiator and the lower hose began to leak. The leak is at the end where the hose connects to the water pump. Why is this leaking and why is my radiator now steaming? I made sure the clamps were secure around the hoses.
