oil cooler hose location help

(1) Hello, the hose that goes on top of the oil cooler. Does anybody have a routing diagram or engine disassembly picture showing its routing?

(2) Where does it connect to the motor.

I think i'm getting old!

That hose is the coolant vent line off the coolant side of the cooler. It goes to the coolant expansion tank.


Yeah what JFP in PA said.

It does not connect to the engine, it goes the surge tank in the rear trunk. It purpose is to vent off any trapped air (the oil cooler is the highest point in the cooling system).

I've got 2 from when I upgraded to the S cooler.

The hose routes around and below the TB.



I believe the hose with the green printing is the vent hose as it passes below the oil fill tube.

Man I sure screwed the cropping on that image. Without going out and opening the engine up, someone correct me if I'm wrong, I think that is the ground cable going to the block.

Yep. Found this image that shows the end. It is the engine to body ground strap. Not the circled temp sensor. Yes I plagiarized....
