    Hey guys, what's the part number for the Radiator hose that connects to the top of the radiator and goes through the timing belt cover to the block? Mine's starting to leak and I guess I need to replace it.

    Also, will the new one have the flanged end like mine does now, or will I have to heat and stretch it to get it over the tip?

    And will I need to drain the radiator if it's just the upper hose? I really don't have to money to do this.

    it will have a flange end. Just buy the premixed coolant from toyota. Thats about 40 bucks for the hose and coolant.

    drain radiator
    remove clamps for upper rad hose and remove hose.
    put new upper hose on and clamps into position
    fill radiator up and overflow to full line.
    DONE!!!

    I changed my top and bottom and they werent even leaking.
