Default PT Hose Problem

I have a 2002 pt cruiser, and i am having a problem with the coolant bottle hose. There are two hoses coming out of the bottle; on on the top right and one on the bottom left. The upper right hose has come off of wherever it is meant to be and when i pour coolant into the bottle it pours out of that hose onto the ground. My problem is i have no idea where the hose is supposed to connect to, and i cannot find an engine layout anywhere. If any one could help me I would very much appreciate it.

Default Re: PT Hose Problem

Pug, you don't have a problem. That is, if you at least have two hoses still connected to your coolant bottle. The long hose connects to your radiator system, and the coolant goes into and out of that hose. The short hose (if still connected) is connected to nothing. It's for over-pouring mechanics that pour too much coolant into the overflow bottle. When you put too much coolant in, the overflow hose (the short unconnected one) just drains the excess out onto the ground.

Check to see that the short hose is connected to your overflow bottle. When filling your overflow, fill it only to halfway between the upper and lower lines on the bottle--when the engine is cold. Mine won't even allow that much, by the way.

I hope this is your problem. That is to say, I hope you don't really have a problem at all.
