Question Identify Hose Below Potentionmeter

Morning Everyone...

Went to get a haircut this morning.. pulled into the parking space and saw white smoke come out of the engine compartment...

After opening up the hood and looked below... liquid was spilling on the hot manifold and pipes causing the smoke...

Looked back from the top and saw this hose with a pin hole in it, and liquid flying out... (pics attached)

Touched the liquid.. it didn't' seem to be anti freeze, or oil... wasn't water.. a bit more viscous... or maybe it was one of them...

Any ideas what runs through this and what the hose is called to get it replaced?

Thanks,

~Jij

Just trace the other end and go to any auto parts store and buy a length. Might be emission control going to the carbon canister that prevents fuel tank vapor escaping.

Jiman,

That is #6 on your diagram.
This hose goes from the intake manifold to the a small water jacket under the throttle.
Check the hose clamps first, that may be the problem, if not, then just replace the hose. This can be bought at any auto parts store.

BTW, coolant runs through this hose...how old is your coolant?

Cheers...

You guys nailed it nailed it nailed it...

I guess my eyes failed me earlier... I thought the coolant tank was full, but it was empty. The coolant had drained... and I guess when it was spilling out, that was the last drops that was very thin... so it didn't look as yellowish green as fresh coolant...

When I was removing the hose, it pretty much broke into 4 pieces... replaced it with identical cable from AutoZone, new clamps as well... We are good to go

Thanks all

Oh and of course added coolant

And seems like tomorrow's mini project.. go back and buy new lines and replace a few other hoses...

I recently replaced all the hoses with this kit from AB--it's worth the piece of mind to get them all done at once.
