I can just see coolant bubbling out of a small hose next to the block behind the radiator. This could be a heater hose. Does it snake through to the firewall or does it attach to the engine? What is involved in repairing this?

This is one of those, kinda need to see it things!

A pic might aid in identifying it, maybe point, or touch it.2 pics-One zoomed out some-one closer. As to be able to see it's "Neighbors"

Instead of going thru all of that trouble.

You are gonna have to visit a parts store, to get the repair items.

Is it drive-able?

If so, it might pay to let the parts store guys take a gander at it, and insure that is the problem. And maybe not something else is spraying on it, or even to make sure, it is coolant and not something else!

You will be assured, that they give you the correct part (I would hope!) Since they are the ones looking at it!

On some hoses, they make a "coupler"/ connector/ splice, that you simply slice/ cut the hose into--right thru the hole, install the connector, and hose clamp either end.

I keep these in my vehicles for emergencies. Only!

They come in all sizes, all the way, as large as your big radiator hoses

If your hose has a hole in it--there's probably a reason, like the hose has deteriorated or maybe is too short, and something rubbed a hole in it. In these cases, I recommend that you replace the entire hose!

Your take on all of this?

I'm here to help, let me know if you might need more!
