Default Oh oh, I think the old Bonneville is jealous of the new one

So the wife is down right cozy in the new car already. I planed to start driving the 95 to and from work. Well the first day being sunday I drove it, I smelled a strong oder of antifreeze when I got out of the car at work. So I parked it when I got home till I figure it out. I went to wally word to get some antifreeze and some new headlight bulbs for it. I was going to try to put the 9005 bulbs in for the lowbeams so it would have some more light.
Well they don't fit the socket, can I just buy a new one for a highbeam bulb to make this work?
Anyways I was look over the hoses and I found this. Probably would have never happened if it didn't loose it'* parking spot
Looks like my niece is going to get the 95 soon. I hate to let it go but she'* getting ready to start driving as soon as she takes her test. So it'* going for a good cause. I'm gonna miss it and I'll to tell her to bring it by for service.

Theres more to installing the 9005'* in the low beams socket than just putting them in. I'm sure you can find the thread again.

Probably, I'm gonna go ahead and replace both hoses just to play it safe. I found out today that coupler is a check valve. I was looking at it thinking maybe it was a past repair.

Well I finally replaced the hoses today. As I grabbed the hose to take it off it broke in two. It wasn't the hose or clamp that was leaking it was the plastic valve that was deteriorating, apparently it started to crack and was ready to go at anytime. Those factory clamps were a real pain in the a$$ to get off at the heater core.
