      NOT. The heater hose directs clean heat into the passenger compartment of the vehicle. The coolant hoses (there are two) carry engine coolant (anti-freeze) from the radiator to the engine & from the engine to the radiator. The hose that carries hot coolant from the engine is located at the top of the radiator, leading from the engine to the radiator. The hose that carries cool coolant from the radiator to the engine is located at the bottom of the radiator, leading from the radiator to the engine.

      Yes and no. Both are coolant hoses, but generally the term “coolant hoses” refers to the the ones connecting the radiator to the engine and are about 2″ in diameter. The heater hoses are in the rear of the engine and are significantly smaller in size and deliver coolant to the heater core.

      No. There are 2 coolant hoses which attach to the top and bottom of the radiator. Heater hoses run from the thermostat to the firewall and then into the heater core which is usually behind the dashboard behind the glove compartment.

      No they are different. You can go to any auto store and buy which ever you need. Talk to the sales person. Most are very knowledgeable about repairs.

      a heater hose goes into you heater core, a coolent hose goes into the engine to help keep it from over heating.

      whether heater or radiator all the hoses that carry coolant are classed as coolant hoses, if you are replacing any of them you just need to specify which one
