It's pretty common.
Try tightening all of the hose clamps, especially by the thermostat.
If it still leaks from one of the hoses, replace the clsamp with a high quality stainless one, problem solved.

so you think it may be from another loose hose causing it to drip into the air release hose?

I've never had this prob. OmegaR6. I am a member of the sv-portal and have heard the same advice as what Patrick recommends. Tighten down the hose clamps.
If I were you, I'd search really well on the sv-portal or start a new thread if you don't find what you're looking for.
Good Luck!
JSC
