    Hoses and cold

    What you prefer, having coolant hoses burst on summer or winter? Its 0* here and the hose under the intake manifold sprung a leak, luckily a mile from my house so shut it off before it got too hot.

    Just looking at it looks easy, wont have to take intake manifold, but man I hate the cold.. haha

    Ugh. That one takes a rather circuitous path under the intake manifold as well.
    Me, on a cold day? A yard or so of 10mm or 3/8" hose and snake it under there until I feel like doing it right. At least the throttle body end is easy.
