do cooling hoses come with the plastic
do hose bought at places like autozone and orieliys come with the plastic? or does one have to cut the clamps off and use new clamps?
I got my hose from autozone and it didnt have clamps i just took off the old ones and put adjustable champs and tighted it that way. The old champs are a pain to take off so good luck!
I'd use OE or OEM and make sure they have the proper fittings for your system, I'm sure you could get screw clamps to hold, but over time, I'm thinking that the amount of force you'd be applying to a brittle plastic part would hasten its demise.
OE hoses are also shaped just like you need them shaped..you don' t need to rig up extra clamps to get it to turn without bending closed...so I'm not sure you really want to monkey around with this...unless, of course, you're someplace where a dealer or the Internet isn't around!
It almost never pays off when someone tries to see if they can save $10 on a repair...I know you can get oe hoses online quite reasonably...or at the dealer ask for AAA or car club discount, you know.
