    Waiting on roadside asst. What a Fkn mess. They knew about it but wouldn't do a recall. Blows. Dodge pisses me off sometime.

    Edit, poor assumption on my part. Seems it's something other than upper radiator hose. What ever it is, all coolant blew out from under in about 5-10 seconds. Still pissed at FCA. Bummer

    Not sure where it blew. All the coolant is gone. Saw it all over the road. Blew somewhere, not top clamp.
