Replace Your Thermostat !!
Ok....I ignored all the warnings. 2004 Disco with 80,000 miles now...had not changed the thermostat as advised... The "lip" for the upper hose decided to disintingrate today while I was doing 60 MPH in the far left lane of a four lane freeway....bye bye coolant... I was able to rig the clamp onto the remaining stub and limp home after a good samaritan drove me to get coolant and water.
Man, the plastic that broke was so brittle. Do yourself a favor and check over your hoses and replace your thermostat if it has been too long.
