    Expansion tank hose

    Iíve been eager to replace my expansion tank, and hoses. I cannot find the same hose that I currently have installed. It appears to have a different hose clamp.

    It's like a decorative cover over a crimp clamp that's all

    Thatís pretty cool! I wonder if the car originally came with that?

    What do you guys use to crimp those? The ear clamps , or thereís some that arenít as heavy duty.

    It's cool until you realize it requires another special tool. It can be replaced with a normal screw hose clamp.

    Be careful of the hard plastic hose further down the line. It will break if touched.
