Early this morning headed up rt 187 in TX I get a low water lite, check & see a drip traced to the top hose rubbing on a metal bracket.
This hose is about 4' long and special $120 model from Freightliner, of course closed in Wichta Falls.
I added water closely watch the temps limped into a Flying Jay, jumped in my car and found a Parts place opened found a 2" OD muffler piece about a 12" long, with 4 clamps. Cut the hose and point of the hole cut the coil spring slipped the pipe in so far so good drove 250 miles to Amarillo everything is good.
There is a FL dealer nearby the Walmart I'm in now which I'll see if he has the hose which I doubt, but I can get it delivered somewhere at another FL dealer along my route.
Question is now that I need to refill the sysytem what types are good & not so good, I see Prestone at Walmart along with distilled water to make up a 50/50 mix.
What is the deal with antifreeze (I have 3126 Cat)
