My 1999 Forrester is leaking coolant at the point where the upper hose enters the engine. It is the original hose in a car with more than 160K miles. I hope it is the hose and not a leak running down from the radiator. Any thoughts?

They all leak there ...usually you just have to tighten the clamp .... but since it has so many miles , just replace the hose and clamps ....!

Look at 160K you gotta replace all your hoses anyway...if it still leaks then your rad is shot...mine went at 120K...what can you do?
