Blown hose

Blew a hose on the truck today pulling a mini excavator. Stopped to get fuel, turned around, and coolant was spraying everywhere.

There is a J shapped pipe on the top of the motor, under the turbo kinda, which has a 3-4 inch heater hose that connects the pipe to something on the intake maybe. This is the hose that blew, it was completely rotted and deteriorated. Anyone know what this pipe is or what it's for? I'm assuming something to do with the heater maybe?

Anyways, spent 1.5 hours in the cold and wind trying to replace it before calling the tow truck and having it drug to Ford. The area in there is so darn tight I couldn't get my hand in to get the new hose both ends. Hopefully Ford wont charge me an arm and a leg to fix it, but I'm working on a project that I have to get finished before the ground freezes and don't have the time to do it my self.

Sorry can't help, was pulling a 30' goose flatbed with a large skidsteer, blew my boost hose (actually the clamp broke and the hose popped off) right in front of a farmer's house, he ran to his shop and got me a couple hose clamps to get me home, gotta love them farmer's!!!

Sounds like its the hose for the EGR delete. I put a yellow "X" on the "J" shaped tubing you were talking about. That hose connects the coolant side of the oil cooler to the "J" tubing (EGR cooler delete tubing).

What kind of hose is used to connect the delete to the oil cooler? The shop is saying there is some special hose from ford that should be used and they can't just use regular 3/4" heater hose.

There shouldn't be any play. Depending on which kit was used, some kits are welded at the plate underneath the intake, some are drilled/tapped and use Teflon tape to seal.

IDK about a special hose, it's only coolant going thru it. The only thing I can think of is, the metal tubing and oil cooler nipple is metric and might get a better fitment if you use a metric hose.

If your running a EGR delete kit, you won't use the Ford hose.

Got the truck back today, the mechanic used the ford hose on it, it doesn't have the typical hose clamps on it. Not really sure how it works, but seems to work fine. I'll try to get a picture of it this afternoon and post it up.

5/8" is the correct hose size for that.
