The issue with the leaking anti-freeze is that there is T type tube that is rotted and needs to be replaced. It is located at the back of the motor. I would like to know where/how I can obtain it: cost, etc. Thanks

We've taken it to a local mechanic to check.
Welcome to JustAnswer Kia my name is Mark.Does your van have the rear heater option?Is it the tube that go to the rear heater that is leaking?
yes to both questions. It is the pipe (T-shaped) that is attached to three hoses that is the source of the leak. Please tell me how it can be replaced. Where can I obtain a replacement part?
Perfect, thanks. There has been a service bulletin released by Kia concerning these leaking heater tubes. I've uploaded a copy for you and it explains the procedure to replace them as well as give you the part numbers. This is a pretty extensive job that requires you work from under the vehicle as well as under the hood so a hoist is the best way to go about that.Click HERE to download the service bulletin.I hope this information is helpful and let me know if you need further assistance with this.
