My heater quit working and now the car overheats...when I looked at the engine there appears to be a leak at a place where a hose comes into a sensor? It looks as if a pink corrosion is forming

Ok you need to check the anti freeze level first to see if the radiator is low. If it is then you need to fix the leak that you found. The anti freeze is pink and comes in a gold bottle GO5 extended life (not to be confused with dex cool it comes in a silver bottle). After the leak is fixed then have a pressure test done to make sure there are no other leaks.

I can see there is a leak but I am can't see it real good can you get another angle of it so I can better see what all is there? Thanks. It looks like that is the coolant temp sensor but it is hard to tell if it is coming from the sensor or?

This is a followup to the original question - How would I repair the leak - Is it the sensor that has gone bad. I have included a picture to help with the question

I intend to answer that question but I do need a better angle of the area of the leak so I can try to see if it is the sensor leaking which then you replace it or if it is the hose or the thermostat housing. Where the two smaller hose come together there is that piece plastic or metal? Get back to me so we can get it fixed. Thanks.

Well with what I can see it looks like you need to replace the housing gasket and I would also replace the hose that is in the middle of that as it look like it is leaking and the put on new clamps. Is that antifreeze red or is it that rusted? If it is that rusted you will be need a coolant flush and new antifreeze too then. Thanks and let me know how it goes.
