Question about 1998 Chevrolet Suburban
What two hoses?
1.Some sort of cooling system hose? Such as the two that go to the heater core? See how much slack you have in the hose, and cut the hose off, right after the outlet tube it attaches to. If there is enough slack you can remount the hose. Use finesse to remove the stuck piece of hose.
If the example IS the heater core, the heater core is made of brass, or aluminum, (<-Not likely), and you can easily damage it's hose outlet tubes. Careful cut along the side, and try to Not go deep enough, to scratch the outlet tube. Peel back one edge with your fingers, and grab it with a pair of pliers. Try to twist the hose. Again, use finesse. Do not twist so tight that you crimp the outlet tube! Work around the hose on the tube. Eventually you will get it broke loose, where you can twist it off of there.
2.Radiator hose? Same thing applies here as listed above. I HAVE used a flat tip screwdriver to get under the edge of the hose, then worked my way around the hose edge. This helps break it loose from the water pump, or radiator, to where you can twist the hose, and twist it off. Using a flat tip screwdriver in conjunction with a brass or aluminum radiator, is ->NOT SMART!
I used the finesse of a surgeon operating on a heart, took my time, and sweated bullets!
