You need a coolant hose. That is not the OEM fitting. The OEM fitting is a molded plastic piece with an oring and a clip. That is a hose clamp.

Wait I'm a moron. That is the OEM hose, but you need a new one. That's gonna fail soon. Don't have the dealer do this. They'll charge you $200 for a 20 minute job and a $30 part.
