Minivan Heater Hose Leak at Y pipe 2008 2009 2010 Chrysler Town and Country Dodge Caravan VW Routan

See full instructions here, click the “show more” button! Think your radiator needs to be replaced on your 2008 2009 or 2010 Chrysler Town and Country or Dodge Caravan minivan? Think again! It might just be this plastic Y pipe on the heater hose! With about in parts (including new antifreeze) you can fix this. It will cost you 0 at the dealer! The dealer part is over 0 alone!
Parts needed:
2 feet of 5/8″ heater hose from Lowe’s, home depot or auto parts store
Brass 3/4″ T-pipe from Lowe’s Part #APXT34 Part Description: 3/4″ Crimp Tee Apollo PEX
1 Gallon antifreeze,
1 gallon distilled water,
drain pan,
6 hose clamps.
Step 1: This step is OPTIONAL. You don’t really need to do this, only a small amount of antifreeze will drain out if you just cut the hose. Optional – Drain the aintifreeze from the radiator. There is a drain on the drivers side of the radiator, turn the red knob with a screwdriver and take off the radiator cap and the antifreeze will drain out.
Step 2: Remove the hoses from the existing y-pipe. This can be difficult and its not necessary to take the hose off the firewall, you can cut it and use it as-is. Use a tree-pruner scissors tool is easiest for cutting through heater hose or use razor blade utility knife.
Step 3: Loose-fit the new brass T and cut pieces of the new heater hose to fit. LOOSELY fit everything together, with the clamps placed also! When you have it all looking good, put some antifreeze on the connections so the hose slips on nice, and push it all together and tighten the hose clamps.
Should take you about 1 hour all together not including the trip to the hardware store.

Don’t use a Plastic T! I did that at first and it cracked after 9 months. Use a Brass T.
The one from Lowe’s or Home Depot was .59
