Easy fix for the bulge would be to just cut the last, bulging inch off the hose and reinstall it as a temporary fix before replacing the hose with one that is compatible with the fluid going through it. I would not be overly concerned about driving it as long as the gauges work and you keep an eye on fluid levels.

Remember that Alberta is a dry climate and cold , particularly this year.
Many times people bring cars up here that seem to bleed to death and itís usually due to a shrinkage problem of seals. Add in synthetic fluids and you can have a full crap your pants situation.
Where are you around here?
I'm hanging out in Cluny. House sitting for a family on holiday out of the country.

I can't tell you how much I appreciate this.

If you can't for any reason, I totally understand.

I can pop over and have a look at 2:00 Thursday just to get an idea of whatís going on. If itís something we can do there i will be able to tell and you can cancel that appointment. If it looks more serious or out of my scope of knowledge you can continue on with County Auto repairs Friday.
Plug the bus in at 10 AM
PM me directions
