I have 1984 Fiero SE with 2.5 motor. I am replacing the antifreeze tank. It has a hose from the antifreeze tank to the radiator that looks unusual to me. It seems to be extremely flexible. It is something special or can you just buy one at a parts store?

Thanks.

Any parts store standard rubber heater hose of the same size will work.

It does not look like any heater hose that I have ever seen. It is thin and flexible. All of the heater hoses that I have ever seen are much thicker and more rigid.

Don't over-tight that hose. GM used metal "spring type" fuel clamp or nylon clamp because that won't crush the soft rubber.

Fill after a flush then do not use 50/50 mix.

Just any rubber hose, it does not carry any pressure. Larry

Any heater hose, it's not under high pressure or anything, 16psi max.
