Hello, has anyone experienced the tube between radiator and overflow leaking and sucking air into the cooling system?



Thank you...

Search "head gasket failure" and similar here.

Doubt the tube is the problem.

It can happen (as can a bad radiator cap), but "air" in the coolant is more typically due to leaking head gaskets, assuming the cooling system was properly filled to begin with.

EDIT: Dave beat me to it! :)

May I suggest that you update the CITY in your profile and put something useful in there.

There are some good folks here.

Often they'll offer to have a look as a second set of eyes and often experience with your issue.
