Got it out, can you post a picture? I'm guessing it is NPT and you can get a suitable one from even Lowes or Home Depot. At your FLAPS, Dorman is a common brand, look on the Dorman web-site for a match.

Seems like an odd part to fail, which may make it hard to find. It is probably a pipe thread. If you can measure the old one, would be easier to find a replacement. Or grab one from a junkyard. Will probably be free.

Ihaven't put a wrench to it, but I'm thinking that it might break off in the manifold. The part that connects to the hose just broke off with finger pressure.

Is this the intake manifold with heater outlet? If yes, there are threads about it. One video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jtiv4FTcPg4, shows a repair. Other videos are available. Dorman part, https://www.amazon.com/Dorman-902-10...12713976&psc=1.

That's for the craptastic 3rd gen plastic intake manifold. The aluminum intake manifolds have a screw in fitting "hose barb" that threads into the IM while providing a nipple for the coolant hose to slip onto.

I've no idea what the thread is, but I'd hazard a guess that the hose is 5/8" so you'd need a 5/8" barb and try a couple different 5/8" thread styles to see what fits in the intake. Pipe thread tends to be a narrow measure for a given size while straight/compression thread tends to be normal/wide measure.

Pipe sizes are inside diameter. I'd guess it would be 1/2 pipe thread, for a 5/8" hose barb, which seems a bit big for a little 1.9L engine, to me. 1/2" thread is what the V8's use for both the 5/8" and 3/4" lines.

SC2Dave-
Following 454cid suggestion, if hose diam=5/8 buy two npt hose barb nipples, one with 1/2" npt thread, maybe a second with 3/8" npt nipple.

Then go undercar with wrenches and try to get the old nipple to unscrew.
There's a good chance the hex/thread portion is intact... but you need find out.
If it breaks apart, can maybe remove with a screw thread extractor, or even use various screwdrivers to jam/turn. Worst case, use hacksaw blade & punch/chisel to break apart the threaded sidewall, then prise out fragments....

Clean threads in head of debris(as with tiny wirebrush), thread in the new nipple to check fit....remove , coat threads with Pipe Sealing Compound
install nipple, tighten just more than by hand with wrench, Remove & Repeat to insure the Pipe sealant is on entire threaded bore in head, tighten firmly.

The hosebarb/nipple needs be galvanized steel/iron Not plastic or bronze or brass. Actually Aluminum might be available, and might work... but i'd stick with the original zinc/galvanized steel/iron.

What is your argument against brass? I've got two brass fittings on my truck.
