Upper Hose that Connects to Radiator

05-06-2010, 09:16 PM
Has anyone ever had the upper copper joint that the large hose on top of the radiator connects to disengage from the radiator itself? If so how did you go about fixing it? And if this hasn't happened to anyone what is your suggestion on the best way to fix it? Without having to purchase a whole new radiator.

How did it come off? Was it running and blew off?

Without having to purchase a whole new radiator.

You've eliminated the only reasonable recommendation. There's precious little that can be done that makes any sense. Radiators are fragile things, usually if anything goes wrong, they're ready to have multiple other failures too.

Nothing blew off. That upper copper part that the hose connects to came off in the hose when I went I was pulling the radiator out. I have it held in place at the moment but was wondering if there is anything that I can do to it without having to get a new one.
