    The original upper rad hose did this & now the new one.
    Clamp and hose was changed by dealer.
    It leaves dried up red crystals from the coolant & I have to add every so often to the resevoir.
    I am just about out of the $25 gallon of Toyota Antifreeze.
    It seems the truck has done this since around 15k & now has 58k.
    Does others notice this on their trucks?

    There is also crystals on the fill resi hose too & have seen pics of others having it there. No leaks on ground though.
    I guess back to the dealer? Does this hurt anything? :notsure:

    New cap is a good idea, also consider small cable ties around the 1/2 inch hoses into /out of the antifreeze reservoir.
