Water Outlet Hose Connector Leak

569 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  AndyQ
Literally just changed this hose on my 2011 due to a hairline crack in the plastic connector; within a few weeks of changing it, noticed a very small coolant leak around the connector again. Had to take the car out last week before I got a chance to investigate a fix, next time I checked under the hood, I noticed some coolant laying on top of the front edge of the engine casing - is it reasonable that the coolant leaking from the connector could travel that far after spraying out from the connector? Or am I possibly looking at a more complicated issue? Starting to feel like a full time job dealing with coolant leaks in the Cruze.

Are you sure that is coolant? Because that is the exact area oil builds up on when the valve cover gasket is cracked.
