Now the rad hose has a slight leak. Should I get a regular hose clamp and clamp it, or a newer "screw" type "wire" clamp?

Also, the damn Trans Cooler lines are leaking again, along with several of the Power Steering lines. Geeebus.

Just went through this man, I bought generic tranny fluid hoses from the autoparts store, it was only about $1 a foot so I keep the extra in the truck now with a couple quarts of tranny fluid. I would not waste your money with the OEM hoses, the stuff I picked up at the autopart store seemed to be better quality and much cheaper.

When I replaced the radiator, I replaced all the clamps with the screw type...When I removed the OEM spring clamps, they never seem to bounce back and become tight again...

I just saw this on mine Monday. I was just going to get a screw clamp and replace the two.

Piece of advice...replace the hose while you're at it...

I just replaced a few of mine a couple of week's ago. The internal trans cooler line was leaking at both end's. I used the same thing, the little "worm" clamp's. A tip would be to make sure you have it seated on the end of the line right up next to the nipple or it will leak & make a mess when you start the engine. This happened to me & it took driving around the block getting on it a little bit to make sure it didn't leak at all again. Just wipe it down real good after you switch the clamp's that way you can see if it leak's easier. :)
