    I guess that's the A/C condenser. The tube that goes back and forth sideways 2 or 3 times horizontally under the very front of the truck just behind the bumber. Well, mine is likely leaking. I see some wetness at one of the junctions. Can this be
    - replaced easily?
    - removed and resoldered?
    - epoxied in place?
    advice?
    thanks

    If it looks like this then it's the PS cooler. Not to bad to change out, You would have to remove the radiator first.

    it's the black one at the bottom. Oh well, I thought that was an A/C line...
    PS eh? Darn, gotta take the radiator off? I was afraid of that, it looked kinda stuck in there...
    Wonder if I could solder it by using a heat shield backing....?

    Before you go yankin' stuff out of the truck it would be a good idea for you to be sure you know what is leaking, where it is leaking from, and how bad it is leaking. Pics will assist those trying to diagnose remotely.
