Hoses that aren't simply point A-B should be illegal.

Brian Min says:

What about replacing the auto radiator hose with the manual one and then installing an oil cooler?

That lower radiator hose has too many potential failure points.

Been getting a coolant leak , have to refill coolant every week , I assume my leaks coming from that octopus hose although the leaks on the passenger side , not the driver side

What mileage recommend for these hoses to be replaced? I have 2 P1 cars. Both have over 150k miles.

I’d definitely advise all owners of these cars to get these hoses replaced cause if they bust your engine will blow very quickly just ask the previous owner of my s40
I put a used engine in my s40 it actually isn’t quite as hard as you might think all the wiring is plug and play very easy the engine comes out fairly easily you have to angle it out the frame rails for it to clear I left the trans attached the new engine was a bitch to get the mounts lined up since it sits tilted rearward a little but overall not as intimidating as it might seem
Now I have a pretty good daily 5 speed s40

holy crow, robert. you are tough and persistent. merry christmas! perhaps you should travel the country helping people with their windows and pc problems. whatever so-called engineer who designed the octo-hose should be flogged. all the saints would approve.

Videos like these make me appreciate the simplicity of my redblock 7/9 cars even more.

that's why I say these s40s are room/ everything plastic and ecu in a hot engine bay if them parts don't fail
today its wont be long before they bust and break . I drive a s60 that mess under the hood is more aggravation that a s70 or 850 any day… I know the average person cant work on these cars anymore.
