Don't be concerned with what it is called. If it is leaking badly it will need to be replaced. Most shops will be helpful in identifying the part for you.


YOu have a upper radiator hose (big) and a lower radiator hose (big). You have a smaller diameter hose running from the recovery tank on the bottom to the radiator. There are two hoses running to and from your heater. If your vehicle has a plastic thermostat housing on the top of the engine, then there is a small bent hose only a couple of inches long which runs from the housing to the water pump. The housing has a temperature sensor on the top which has an electrical connection on it.
