I have antifreeze leaking pretty fast from a radiator hose, I'm really not mechanically inclined but wonder if the can get patched or am i going to had to put a whole new hose. Looks like it is in the middle comming from that big white plastic hose but not sure could be dripping down from one of the other hose zipped tied to it. Probably going to have to get it done by my repair guys, hope its not to expensive. Thanks :shades:

Those long hoses from front to back is not really a hose, it's plastic pipe with fittings on the ends and the fitting go bad.
There's a kit to repair the end available, but not something for a beginning DIYer.
When I have some time I'll look up the repair kit for you.
