Hi - honestly your best bet for this hose is going to be a dealership, although you could try either a NAPA or AutoZone as well. Those stores don't typically have the comprehensive microfiche or computer exploded diagrams that show parts in the detail that a dealer will have. That hose is a pressurized hose that goes from the engine to the heater core. On my cars, it's usually a nomral heater hose (ie, a fiber-reinforced rubber hose) of a specific diameter. You could take it off the car and go to a parts store to see if they have it. They may not have a packaged replacement hose with a part number, but they do carry reinforced heater hose in spools that they can cut by the foot. You may be able to do it that way and save the typical dealer's exorbitant price. If it's a pre-formed hose or any special design however, you'll be forced to buy the actual part at a Cadillac dealership.

Heater hose busted on my 2001 Montana van


If it's a heater hose, it will go to the firewall behind engine, where it connects to the heater core's fitting that juts out from firewall. Hose goes over that fitting. Heater hoses are fairly easy to replace, maybe not so easy on yours, due to lack of space. Drain the coolant before taking off hose, loosen clamps on it, then start pulling it off. Watch for a hose holding bracket that also needs to be removed before hose is completely free. Some do, some don't have such a bracket. Hire a neighborhood kid that works on cars to replace it, as sometimes that hose to heater core fitting can get stuck on tight, and if one starts yanking or pulling on it, you can break the fitting and will then need a new heater core-big expense to replace. Good luck and merry christmas in capital letters, lol.

It appears you have a leaking heater hose or heater core, which is located behind the engine, and goes from engine to firewall. Check your heater hoses coming from firewall.

I have a coolant hose that comes out from the engine block and goes towards the cab which is leaking. the hose has a screw type finding into the block


If the hose comes from the engine and goes to the firewall it is most likely a heater core hose. If it's a rubber hose with clamps on each end it should be fairly easy to replace by lossening the clamps and fitting a correct size new hose in it's place.

Leaking antifreeze between firewall and motor on passenger side. just started when i tried to use the heater. could it be the heater core and where is it located


Could be the heater core, or where your heater hoses connect at the firewall. Heater core leak would more than likely put steam in the vents of you car when heater is on and hot and fan on. If the leak is just in the engine compartment, it`s a hose or a loose connection.

93 lincoln town car leaking antifreeze down back of engine


there is a small heater hose on the pass side rear from the firewall(heater core) to the intake manifold. the plastic manifolds have a tendency to split where the hose fitting goes into the intake. If that is where it is leaking the manifold needs replacement.

Leaking coolant water


This L shaped hose is a drainage for the heater core compartment. Once we removed the panel to the heater core it was obvious the heater core was leaking into this compartment. We changed the heater core out and the problem has been solved :)
