Default coolant tank.

i had to switch out my coolant reserve tank because the original one was leaking. When i got the new one, it had an extra nipple on it. The extra nipple is on the right in the picture. I thought it was the wrong part and so i ordered one online and it has the extra nipple also that the orig one didn't have. Is there anything that should be hooked up to it, or anyway to cap it. My friend that changed it out and put the hose/bolt there, but its a "quick fix" that sucks as you can see by the coolant everywhere on the motor. Pics attached.

Default RE: coolant tank.

Only certain cars had that hose that runs to the engine yours doesn't. I would call who you bought it from and see if they have 2 different ones.
