    hi everyone,

    I have a 1996 chevy 2500 diesel 4x4.
    The engine coolant lines are leaking quite a bit.

    Is this something I can tighten or do they have to be changed?
    Mechanic wants $850.00 canadian.

    It this would be the second time this would get done on this truck in 4 - 5 years.

    Any advice would be great.

    All depends on which coolant lines and where they are leaking.

    Well like it has been already stated: We need to know where they are leaking and why? Corosion, loose clamps, or holes in the hoses? I'm sure we can give the propper advice. I am a certified automotive technician.
