More Coolant Issues

So I just replaced the Coolant return tank a couple of weeks ago because it has a small crack near one of the mounting points that was slowly leaking. Yesterday, I get to work and smell antifreeze. I open the hood and find it pouring down under the thermostat housing. Looking closer, I can see antifreeze boiling out of the hose going into the bottom of the thermostat housing.

The problem is, I don't know which hose it is as far as which hose I should be telling a parts store I need or ordering a replacement. I spent 2 hours searching for the correct hose and could not find a definitive answer. So, I am hoping someone here will be able to help.

This is the hose I need if anyone can identify it for me.


Thanks.

Most autoparts stores do not carry stuff for the SVT. Call steve at tascaparts.com. You can order from him or he can suggest where you can purchase from.

Thanks for the reply pasta.

I wasn't too hopeful that a parts store would carry this part. However, I don't think the SVT coolant hoses are different to the regular ZX3.

Either way, I still need to know how to refer to this hose so that I can check parts stores or find a place to order it online.

For anyone who wants to know, the coolant hose in my image that I was asking about is the coolant bypass hose.
