Small leak in mystery hose. Coolant??

1714 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  STMech
Hey everyone.

I noticed a small leak of a yellow/green fluid coming out of a hose on the drivers side of the engine.
the hose is connected to a small metal pipe that goes into the back of the engine, and the rubber hose connects into the drivers side of the engine just below the air intake.
I have attached photos.
I am a novice when it comes to cars, and cannot figure out what this hose is called/what it does?
Any ideas? I was assuming coolant, but can’t depict any sweet smell.
is this hose easy to replace?
Will I be fine just wrapping the small tear with some sort of hose repair tape until I can get the hose replaced?

Thanks guys, appreciate all the help in advance.

Small leaks can become bigger leaks at the most inconvenient time. Coolant leaks can lead to overheating problems, which you do not want! Replace the hose asap. Don’t try to tape it up, it won’t hold. If you aren’t a DIY, pay a shop to do the job. Coolant (and oil) is your engine’s lifeblood.

You may already have lost coolant, so check that out right away. When the engine is cold, remove the radiator cap and top it up if it needs coolant. Also check the overflow tank and top up as needed. Keep an eye on coolant levels until you get this fixed.
