Have to add coolant to reservoir every week. Radiator and hoses and pump are not too old. Had a pressure test twice and they say it's the bottom hose, they tightened it up but it is still leaking. Nothing on ground. No water in oil ect. I did replace the coolant reservoir.

Good morning,

Why did they not replace the hose?

The clamp may have damaged the hose and it is leaking from that issue.

I would have it replaced and retested. This is a simple repair and needs to be done before the small leak becomes a gush.
