Besides mind ray prevention, aluminum foil makes a good pot pipe when you run slam outta Zig Zags.

duct tape and wd 40 and a BFH.
If you can't fix it with any of those three items, it is an electrical problem.

Phillies work better. Especially the "Blunts".

don't forget the tinfoil and tooth picks. I used those items, along with the duct tape, to get my Charger home one night, many years ago, when the upper radiator hose sprung a leak.

Break the toothpick in half, and inset the broken end into the hole in the hose Next, wrap it with tinfoil, then wrap it in duct tape. Let the engine cool, then top off the radiator with water or coolant, and leave the cap on it, loose, not tight. this keeps the pressure down while you drive it home, or to the shop.

Now, the important part, make sure you put the broken end in the pinhole leak, as it allows the water\coolant mix to swell the toothpick, giving a better seal. The tinfoil puts a layer between the hose and the tape, giving it better odds of sticking to the hose. a loose cap prevents a pressure buildup, as most radiator caps can hold over 12 PSI, which don't sound like much, but could put that toothpick through your hand easily.

It ain't permanent, but it will get you home. (might have to add toothpicks to the hacks thread I started a while back. Anyone else got a use for them, other than cleaning teeth?)

Rescue Tape works wonders even on radiator hoses.
