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.

Heating issue ?!


Have you scanned your engine computer? If your thermostat is stuck open, it will set Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0125 or P0128 These codes indicate that the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor or the Cylinder Head Temperature (CHT) sensor did not reach operating temperature within a calibrated amount of time after engine start-up. These monitors have to fail on two CONSECUTIVE engine start-ups before they will turn the check engine light on. So if you start it cold, then shut it off and start it when it is still partially warmed up the next time, it would never turn the light on because the monitor does not run on a partially warm engine. However, they will store a fault code in continuous memory on the FIRST failure. So, your check engine light may or may not be on if these codes are set. If one or both of these codes are set, then your thermostat is the most likely suspect.

Other than this, the best way to verify proper cooling system operation is with an infrared thermometer. These can be purchaced at most parts outlets for around $65 or less. (AutoZone has one listed on their web site for $54.99 Part Number: MSC52224ASP )
This is a lot less than one hour's worth of diagnostic time in most shops....And you can use the thing for many other purposes.

You can point it at your thermostat housing and while doing this, feel the upper radiator hose with your hand. The upper radiator hose should not begin to feel warm until the thermostat housing gets up to around 190 Deg. F. At 195 Deg, F, the upper radiator hose should feel VERY hot. You can also point the infrared at the radiator tank near where the upper hose connects to verify this. If the hose (or the radiator tank) gets warm too soon, the thermostat is stuck open.

My 1996 honda civic ex overheated this afternoon. I noticed smoke coming out of the hood on the passenger side. I got off of the highway to find a service station but when I stopped at a light the check...


I would check all my hoses, top and bottom radiator hose, and all heater hoses.. check for breaks. Check all clamp connections on hoses. I think this may be just a worn hose that busted. This would not be serious nor expensive. The smoke was probably steam from the overheated coolant. If you stopped it when the light came on ,there should be no additional damage.

I think the hose connected to my radiator might be busted. How hard and expensive of a fix is this?


If either the top or bottom hose has broken and is leaking do not drive the vehicle as it will over heat very quickly and damage the engine. Either hose is fairly simple to replace especially the top one. It only requires taking off two hose clamps and purchasing the correct hose to replace it and positioning it the same as the old one.

There's a good web site for getting estimates on auto problems. In my area, a head gasket on your car is estimated at around $1500 at a dealer, $200-300 less at an independent garage. The site will also show a list of independent garages in your area.

Water leak on manifold of 1996 susurban. looks like hydraulic line connected but suspect it might be rear heater hose that is leaking . any ideas?


I had this problem with my 1998 suburban.......there is a quick connect that goes into the  top of the engine close to the water pump.......the hose will come off without any tools....the quick connect screws into the top of the engine.....in fact my was so screwed up it busted off in the engine and I had to use an easy out to remove it.........
I went to O'reillys and they showed me what was leaking...... when its just leaking a little it hits the manifold and evaporates....so you never see any water...
