Hello everyone. This question was archived back in 2006 and information I cannot find real well on the net, but basically I have a broken Heater Hose & fitting on my Intake Manifold. It's a quick disconnect hose. I seem to have found the fitting for the Quick Disconnect hose, but cant find the actual Quick Disconnect hose anymore for it. All I can seem to find are basic heater hoses which dont look like they will work with a quick disconnect. I cant find a part number to this quick disconnect hose or it would help me here. Can anyone of you experts guide me in the right direction to getting one to work for this? It's a 1988 Fiero with the 4 Cylinder engine. Thanks again in advance.

Need The Entire Hose & Pipe Molded To It

theorge got it. Please see his link above to show what I need. I have the Quick Disconnect, but the hose & pipe I have were damaged during engine removal so I need another pipe & hose. I have the Quick Disconnect fitting, but cannot find this hose anywhere online.

Use a cutoff wheel to remove the hose crimp on the chassis side, next use a brass fitting with a hose barb at the intake manifold, then get a new length of heater hose and use hose clamps on the 2 ends.

I'm guessing he's wreck the metal tube...

Quick fix
just use normal plumbing parts and reduce output to 9/32 inch to reduce flow (not hose/plumbing size)

I have post an update to that page... (Thought was done awhile back but guess missed it.)

look for 87 - 92 VIN R and VIN U engines. Likely use same or similar tube.

Possible Problems...
Engine does moves (See my Cave, Torque Strut) and using normal plumbing parts could stress the short hose for this reason. Make sure you have enough hose. Iffy dog bone can breaks things. GM fitting allow hose to move a little. Auto trans is worse but stick can have same problem.

If you put hose barb so hose is long as possible w/o kinking is a good plan.
