I went out to the garage this afternoon to start getting the rex ready for summer and there is a puddle of antifreeze under it. My garage stays warm all winter so nothing should have froze. Any ideas?

I have had the same happen. Starts leaking out of one of the radiator hose connections. You can try what I did. Feel for which one is wet, then undo the clamp, loosen that joint (twist it) and retighten. If that doesn't work, then you likely need some new parts.

Yea I read some old posts and this seems to be a common problem. I gonna head out to the garage and check all of the connections.

Sure enough there were a few things that needed to be tightened. I guess I should flush it and replace the coolant anyway, anyone know how much coolant there is in this system?

The factory has fixed that problem. They now offer a one piece radiator hose to replace the reducer that leaks. I have them in stock if anyone needs them.

MPM23500.........$30.99
MPM23400.........$22.99
