I'm starting to get scared to open the hood. Every time I open it I find another leak LOL

Please help diagnose!

I'm not sure why it would be leaking. The hose looks intact. It's leaking from the top of the hose where it's clamped down. Maybe the plastic pipe is cracked underneath the hose I'm not sure I haven't tried to pull it off yet. Maybe somebody has had the same thing and can point me in the right direction.

When you get the water outlet, make sure you have another top hose handy. I remember reading about a redesign. The old hose may not fit the new outlet and may have to be replaced as well. Just be prepared for the possibility.
I believe you are right about the redesign of the plastic one because I had to mix and match parts from the old and new water outlet so the hose would fit. Now its leaking. Guess what part I'm ordering next...
Dang. I already ordered the dorman. I also ordered all new GM hoses that connect to it. Didn't know if I could trust a no name metal one..this is my 3rd as well. I had one replaced under warranty around 34,000. Last one lasted 65000 miles. Just hit 100k
ZZP has an aluminum one for $50. Not sure if they make it or source it from a no-name. Reviews seem good on it.
