Leaking hose

05 SS. Drove the car this morning. Went to move it, to get another car. Saw a puddle under the car. Looked under the hood, saw this leak. I've checked the clamp and it is just a tad loose. If I need to replace the hose, does anyone know the specific name of the hose?

Just incase you guys don't see it, it's the hose right by the cooling fan.

Lol yup! I followed that hose, and it goes down to the intercooler pump. Well, there was a loose clamp right next to the spring clamp on the IC pump. Brought the loose clamp up, and tightened it and no more leak.

I added coolant to the coolant reservoir. Is the coolant reservoir filled too much? Would over filling cause it to leak? The car leaks from the coolant reservoir when running.

Thats the engine coolant bottle. The leak you were pointing out was on the supercharger cooling system.

Right, but it no longer leaks from the supercharger coolant hoses. Now it leaks from the bottom of the reservoir.

Yes, the engine coolant reservoir appears to be overfilled. When the engine is cold the coolant level should be at the seam of the tank where the cold fill level label and arrow is.

Awesome, thanks! On my other cars, it's fill to the top when cold. But hey, just goes to show RIF.
