Customer Question
My top radiator hose...

My top radiator hose blew away from my radiator while driving

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the car been overheating? Have you noticed any leaks?

No leaks, it will go to overheat then if at highway speed, I have thought thermostat would finaly kick in and it cool back down. Heat sometimes blows cold at reg temp but would go hot when overheating, but not this morning.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Subaru?

2001 Forester

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Forester yourself? What have you tried so far?

It just happened. I would like to fix myself if I am able.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I don't think so.
