The hose between my thermostat housing and my water pump is leaking.... On both sides! When I replaced the old hose with a new one, I discovered quite a bit of corrosion, and after cleaning it off I can now see a lot of pitting. I have already tried permatex gasket maker, but it is still leaking. I've had to remove the thermostat housing four times in the last week, and I'm really fed up with it. From what I've seen taking radiator hoses off of various vehicles at the local junkyard, this must be a common problem with a common solution, since corrosion is so prevalent on almost every aluminum nipple I have seen. What is the solution???
