    If it's not one thing it's another re: the 2005 LS V8 Cooling System.
    I recently replaced the Degas Bottle (Factory Ford OEM) and now most of my hoses are leaking.
    Primarily the two of the three hoses connecting the DCC Valve and Auxiliary Water Pump to the Metal Heater Lines. See Attached Photo:

    Does anyone have the Part numbers and the type of tool to remove the high pressure end connectors from the metal heater lines?

    Appreciate the support!

    Are you sure that the hoses themselves are actually leaking and not the DCCV and/or aux pump? I've had those leaks, but so far not the hoses themselves.
    If you are certain, no tool is really needed (just squeeze in the right places), but this might work:
    www.amazon.com/Great-Neck-OEM-27106-Disconnect/dp/B004FEHZB4/ref=pd_sim_auto_10?ie=UTF8&refRID=14Y5MR0YCZCDVBP2NQP0

    The plastic connectors will almost certainly break in the process at their age. Count on buying all three hoses.

    Please do note that as soon as you fix this/these leak(s) that another plastic part will start leaking once the system tries to pressurize again. A long time ago we all learned that you have to replace ALL the plastic cooling system parts at the same time. This may or may not include your radiator. Speaking of which, make sure that it is not really your radiator leaking. The radiator leaks start at the front of the radiator on the passenger side, where hot coolant from the upper radiator hose hits the front wall of the tank.

    Thanks JOEGR and sorry for the delay..
    They're leaking from those weird connectors. (I'll need two as one was replaced already.)
    In addition, the long small diameter hose from the Degas Bottle to the Thermostat Out

    I hear you re: replacing ALL coolant related components. The Coolant leaking saga started while I was working out of town for a year or so; had the wife take it to a mechanic and had the Thermostat Outlet and Pipe replaced along with the bottom Radiator hose and one of the heater hoses. FYI. Over the phone the mechanic kept trying to convince me he was an expert on T-Birds and LS's cooling issues. We all know how that turned out.....

    So far, the radiator is fine.. for now anyways.. I did purchase a new DCCV and Main Water pump a while back haven't installed yet..

    Appreciate the support...
