PLEASE HELP

alright to i just finished installing my new manifold and hvac inlet heater hose and the connection is leaking

i think it might be because the metal tube where the connection fits on is all bent and not even on the end.

does anyone know what that part is called and maybe a quick way to fix it.

Sounds like tour talking about the heater core. You could try to straighten it up with a pair of pliers.

Connect the inlet and outlet together with a shorter hose.

5/8 heater hose off the shelf at the parts store and 2 clamps to seal it off. Cut the hose to the length you need it clamp it in place fill the car up with coolant and call it a day.
Hope that helps.

It was the inlet on the firewall which is bent and caused it to leak i just bypassed it by cutting the quick connector off the hose and i just clamped em together ill get some self fusing sealant tape for an extra piece of mind lol
