As I was driving home today my Lower radiator hose came off, my coolant level low light came on and I pulled into a restaurant parking lot...Drained all my coolant.

I know it is very hard for these things to come off but I noticed a while ago that it was already loose, so i was just asking for this to happen :face palm:

- Am I going to be able to do this in a parking lot with some tools?

- How hard exactly is this and is there a Diy out there?

Thanks in advance for any help
this thread might help..

remember, replace both hoses at the same time. they'll wear out from the inside out...
