What are PRICES for Heater Core Hoses (2) w Special Fittings !??

So i ended up needing both hoses for the Heater Core and they are for a 98 Firebird 3800 V6 series 2 Engine. (The twin hoses that one of them run to the Tensioner that has a cooling system.)

If anyone knows the prices on these or any info, (like the GM part Number) let me know

It would be greatly appreciated

-Thanks

They are a dealer/junkyard only item and they are VERY expensive from the dealer if they still have them available (over $100).

The one you need is the $125.77 heater hose set that is on the first page when you click the link you posted.

That sounds about right. Mine were pretty bad by the time I swapped the motor at 143k.

alrite, thanks for the info, appreciate it

so i just wanted a n idea of what they will charge, because the GM Warehouse is closed on weekends so i had no idea what it would cost, but this gives me a good idea. although, how much would it be for just one hose? because in the google i think its for a set of both, and i really only need one and don't want to spend extra, money is loww

hmm i wass thinking of doing that,but i was thinking how much of a hassle it would be to do that , disconnecting it from the heater core, and and i dont know how well it would fit after, if it would tho

so where am i supposed to cut it off, if i do?

OH, and im located in Michigan, Rochester Hills, if anyone knows tha place lol.
i know of a J,yard arround here its in detroit, on 8 mile and mound or something (if anyone is around my are knows what im talking about)

but anyways, im not sure that if i get that from the junk yard i can use it , id have to look at it closer and inspect it .

-thanks for that idea though,il keep it in mind tho

well i would get them new since you got the other part new but theres like a metal clip that holds the hoses together i clipped them there near that metal clip. Then i had some parts that went inside the hoses to combine them together also used the hose clamps to keep them connected

ALrite guys, so i got it back and w parts and labor for the job was as follows:

TOTAL of $387.00 ! for:

Tensioner: 156.70
Coolant: 23.00
Shop supplies: 26.00
Serpentine Belt Tensioner ( 2.2) hr labor : 175.00
Hazardous materials ( ?!?) : 20.00

TOTAL: RAPED... i mean.. 387.00

AWSOMEE.

and THATS WHY IM NOT DOING THE HOSES.. YEAH
guess what after all that.. im not putting on the hoses (financially incapable right now.. :/ ) so therefore if am using the original hoses and left it with that and seems to be doing good so far [knock on wood] haha.

If i did get the hoses.. the closest ones to Michigan were in Winsconsin (that the shop found for price of 275, plus labor 100....soooo, f that.

I found some for 110 and il do that some time when i can get to it.


But for now i have to keep an eye on it and its running fine, i ALSO replaced the Coil Pack for cyl 5,& 2, and am going to Change the spark plugs and wires tomorrow hopefully. its been bogging out less cuz of the coil pack, but should fix it when i change the rest..

sorry for tha major longass post hah. my b

I changed my heater hose out with new OEM last July @ 175,000... that being said, i had already 'rigged' it the way Atanur said @ about 150,000... so that is about a 25,000 mile fix... when I did it, I changed out the tensioner pulley assembly and the belt as well, as the tensioner had gone bad... you really can do it yourself, it isn't very hard... the hardest parts were getting a good fit into the connectors in the firewall (not a lot of space to work with) and the PITA bracket that mounts into the wheel well didn't have the hole drilled in the right place, so i had to drill it out a little... anyway, the hose was $177 at the dealer... i can find my receipt for it for the part # if you want... this is the hose you're talking about here:

thanks , i have the part number myself, i acquired it somehow but i might just keep these on for a while because theyr fine like this so far and its actually being held on better then they said it would.
my concern currently is changing my damn sparks and wires, adn its a bitch lol.

i was told today that my "AUTOLITE" sparkplugs are for ford only? and ' wont work on chevy motors' (firebird/camaro..same thing) anyway i guess i have to get some other ones.

so what kind am i supposed to get ??
