thought my gt was on fire but a certain coolant hose blew out

Trying to figure out what this hose is connected or what it's called, the hose is good but the thing it's connected to isn't so good barley made it home it shut off on me but luckily I was up a hill and just coasted to my parking spot, but just trying to see if it's a quick fix as in just replacing that hose and flushing out the coolant or is it a take out this part to get to that part to finally get to the adapter type of thing

Hm hard to tell. Is it on there tight now? If it is I would refill the coolant and just monitor the level for awhile

Yeah my bad it's late and my car is at the very end of the street since it died half way home but I tried to clamp it again but since the piece it was connected to is corroded and missing pieces it won't clamp on so it's just lose and spills the coolant so the engine dies every time it runs but I'll definitely take better pictures tomorrow, thanks for the feed back though

your engine dies every time it runs? Did you over heat it by losing coolant and then proceeding to drive around anyways?


It looks like the fitting that leads to the heater core.


You don't need to use that to drive around. Coolant comes out of the engine, goes into the heater core, and then is returned to the engine into a tube that runs below the intake manifold, but is outside of the engine.


Connect hose from where the coolant flows out of the engine, and then plug the other end of the hose to where it goes back in. THen top off the coolant and drive like that until you can get it fixed.


And make sure your hose clamps are good too.

Oh and by the way, it looks like you have your hose clamp in the wrong spot on the coolant return pipe.


I could be wrong though, its hard to see on that pic

Your intake manifold could be broken on the inside too which might cause coolant to be getting into your cylinders (causing it to die on you)

I would definitely just replace it though. What year car is it? I have a spare PI intake that I would love to sell and Id sell it cheaper than you can buy anywhere else.

Are they Windsor or Romeo heads?

Windsor. But I am 99% sure they are the same and will bolt to the romeo block and work fine. The only difference in fitment is the valve covers, which come with the heads if I sell them.

There are a few more modifications to make or Windsor parts you need to swap them to a Romeo npi. I knew the valve covers were different. I can't remember off the top of my head what else was different, possibly the timing cover Also? I'm looking for a good set of Romeo's but keep striking out. I have a new intake ready to go and all the gaskets, but I'm losing interest as I can't find a decent priced set of Romeo heads.

hmm. Well, I know that in the one of them has a bolted on cam gear, and the other is pressed on. Not sure which is which. But

I do know guys that have a Windsor head on romeo block. The bolt hole sizes are different on the timing chain cover, but that's pretty much it.

Windsor heads on Romeo block ?'s

Gotcha. I think the Windsor has the pressed on cam gear. You can for sure do Windsor heads on a Romeo block just a little more work. I want to make it as straight forward as possible.
