    confused Coolant bottle

    Taking a peek yesterday I noticed this, but not shure if this is the cause of my slowly coolant lose....
    At the back of the bottle, near the cap there`s a plastic tubieee that seems to be there and intended to have a hose on(which it doesen`t), also at the bottom of the bottle theres a platic "clamp" for holding that posible missing hose. At first glance it looks like is kind of pressure release valve, do to its high position, but again it looks that it`s missing a hose....true? not? Could that be te responsable of the coolant lose?
    Cheers

    It's a bottle that is used in more than one model of Vxl, In the Vec it is a redundant connection and should be water tight and nothing to worry about. the staining is probably from coolant collecting at the blank end of the tube or "tubieee" as you call it. If it was a missing hose the bottle would empty in minutes with steam every where
