There is a hose not included in the TFS package, Gates 21532, that O'Reilly's said was one of two between the driver's side coolant pipe and the engine. On my GT there are two pipes on the driver's side which have been connected with a short piece of (leaking) hose and numerous clamps. My feeling is the short piece of pipe to the rear of this clamp situation is meant to go between these two hoses. I also have an SE that has no coolant problems and you would think I could easily check, but so far that has not been practical. The GT has a long, flex hose that also leaks, instead of these two hoses.
How many of these hoses are different on an 88 with 2.8?
Is there a collection of part numbers anywhere for all coolant / heater hoses? Rockauto has many on clearance but I dont know which are which. They also seem to list some as (except AC) and some as (w/o AC) which both seem to mean "if you dont have ac"
