HEATER HOSE FITTING

2002 Buick Lesabre

Engine Cooling problem
2002 Buick Lesabre V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 100000 miles

My car started running hot on my 2002 buick lesabre yesterday. I noticed water squirting out of my heater hose fitting and in 2 days my coolant ran very low. What caused this and could it be more than just a damaged heater hose fitting? Is this going to cost me a lot to get fixed?

Ifit's the fitting that leaking it won't cost much but if it'sthe heater core it could. You need a special tool to replace the fitting. But try pusshing the hoseon and see if it clicks. That may be allit is.
