Radiator to expansion tank pipe

boniface

Accelerating Away
I have a 4.6HSE and there is a very slight coolant leak where the plastic pipe from the top of the rad joins the short rubber hose which connects to the expansion tank. The clip seems tight but I think it is difficult to clamp a rubber hose tightly to a plastic hose because it gives under the pressure of the clamp. Should there be a metal insert in the end of the plastic pipe so that the rubber hose can clamp tightly?
Thanks.
