Big Problems

I知 not a car junkie. I have problems with my 92 Explorer, and little
money to fix. :( I知 getting little to no engine power, which is
especially noticable going up hills. I have a huge leak of antifreeze
out of a hose that looks like it is going to the engine(It has this
small cap on it and the rubber thing in it is not stopping the
anti-freeze from coming out). I went all over trying to find that part
with no luck, guess I will have to go to the dealer. I need some
suggestions on what to do? and What the problem(s) could be?

Re: Big Problems

Just a wild guess, but is the cap installed in one of the heater
hoses? Sounds like it could be a fitting installed as part of a
Prestone anti-freeze flush kit. If so, easiest fix would be to
replace the heater hose and eliminate the fitting with the cap.

Re: Big Problems

Or go to Home Depot/Lowes and get a new rubber washer for it in the
lawn/garden center.

As for the lack of power... it could be alot of things.

Sounds like you better get some more money. As for the hose I can't quite
picture what it is you are talking about. The only coolant caps I know of
are the radiator cap and the reservoir cap.

As for lack of power it could be a lot of things such as a clogged air or
fuel filter, slipping transmission, bad spark plug wires, dirty sensors, or
who knows. Is it overheating? Maybe if you give us a little more
information...
