2001 L-Series 3.0L Sedan
Wrench 2001 Saturn L300 (L81/3.0L V6) - Upper Radiator/Coolant Hose [Replacement]

This replacement hose was as difficult as I had expected.

You will notice that I end up moving the Throttle Body connector to the far left of the oil dipstick and then loosen the hose clamp to get it forward enough.

Make sure that you utilize "the ear" [thanks fdryer] that sticks out because it helps to use a pry bar to hold pressure toward yourself while "working" the hose on (the front part of the engine).

It's a tight squeeze; and not a lot of room to work with; therefore make sure that the bottom of the hose is as flush to "the ear" as possible.

* Make sure to remove the Front Engine Guard/Mount first; otherwise you cannot use a pry bar to the left of "the ear" which gives you the ability to not have the hose end being firm (which connects directly to the extension hose to our thermostat).

To be quite honest; I wanted to change it out anyways, then I was hoping I could remove the hose and use a rubber mallet to ensure the extension hose was fully knocked in the thermostat to ease my mind that I installed it correctly and I wouldn't have internal coolant leaks. Turns out; you cannot do this I found out today. I suppose it's fine and now I have a new Upper Radiator / Coolant hose.

Tool Needed:
  • Replacement Hose (New) [I used Gates]
  • Flat head screw driver (Medium size worked fine depending on your hose clamps; I changed all mine to flat head screw driver type, rather than using the special clamp types that I do not like. *Most certainly a preference thing here it seems by reading others posts*.
  • Pry Bar [Optional perhaps]

Thank you everyone!

Best Regards,
