You need to concsider the likelihood that you need to replace the radiator,
immediately. Not soon, immediately.
The radiator and waterpump are both made of a plastic that grows old and
wears out. When the radiator wears out, parts (the inlet and outlet hoses)
fall off and the coolant pumps out in very short order. On a good day, the
overflow tube breaks off, giving you advance notice of impending doom.
The waterpump impeller is made of the same plastic, and the vanes wear down,
causing the water pump to stop pumping.

Radiator dismantling itself, that is really bad; Yes, I do need new
water pump and radiator. The car is already 17 years old and I am not
sure if those things have ever been changed. Apart from the radiator,
water pump and the return hose housing (mysterious part) is there
anything else made of plastic in the cooling system?
In meantime I took the part out of the car and noticed that there is
no part number on it :(
Here is a close look of the part.
