Default Heater hose is leaking coolant!

Evry thing went fine for a few weeks with the new engine but today I find out that the heater hose is leaking cause the bottom of the hose is wet with coolant

The first thing to do (after checking there is no hole in the hose).

The coolant level drops an inch a day in the reservior. I can't tell where the coolant is leaking but the buttom hose is wet. and if I touch the hose the coolant drop faster.

Man I still have to wait until thursday for the fix!

Be sure u are correct about the hose leaking. The heater core is a plastic nippled piece of crap very weak in design. Never pull on the heater hose to dislodge from core instead carefully slit hose with razor blade to seperate from core. place a piece of cardboard under car try to pinpoint leak .Behind crossmember about where gas pedal is is a drain hole where if your core is leaking it will drip out of.
