Connected pressure tester and attempted to add pressure to system. Heard bubbling sound in driver side of engine bay. Checked for source of noise. Found heater hose fitting cracked and leaking.

Removed broken heater hose assembly. Replaced heater hose clamp with new unit and installed new hose. Reattached radiator hoses. Filled cooling system and pressure tested. No additional leaks present. Bled cooling system and test drove vehicle. No further overheating and coolant level is steady.
