Are you sure it is Pentosin and not radiator fluid. When you say hoses, what diameter are they. If it is by the fuse box and has three hoses that are about 1/2 to 5/8 inch diameter, it is the heater pump and it should be anti freeze.
What happened to mine is that one of the inlets was cracked under the hose clamp, fortunately there was enough of the inlet left to still get a hose and clamp on it.
