FORD ESCORT LOWER RADIATOR HOSE PROBLEM

1999 Ford Escort • 76,000 miles

I have a 1999 Ford Escort ZX2 with the DOHC motor. The car developed a severe lead around the front of the motor. I replaced the water pump and that fixed part of the problem. Now there is a constant leak somewhere above the AC compressor. I was thinking the lower radiator hose, but it is dry at the connection and no sign of a hole in the hose. The dripping of the anti-freeze is across the AC compressor.

Have it pressure tested to verify the leak. Guessing is usually wrong
