That's expensive. Which hoses do the say are about to bust. The hoses have plastic couplers built in to hose that attach to plastic piping. Usually there is nothing wrong with the hoses. The plastic piping and couplers are what busts. You can actually remove couplers from hoses and go get a couple of brass tees to reattach hoses with clamps

Great answer, thanks. Finding a good, honest mechanic that will check this is another story .I was told it's hard to get to and I can't do this myself. Thanks again!


You are very welcome.

Just wanted to add, they said they were heater hoses & a connector. We can't see them looking under the hood they can only be seen under the car taking the cover off. My husband couldn't see any moisture. The other hoses ( radiator etc) look good though. My G35 has 100,00 miles on it...does this still sound feasible to you??


They are hard to see. Some models are half way down on firewall and others were at bottom. Probably yours is at bottom. I would just look at the plastic connectors and like. If hoses aren't swollen. You don't have to replace them. If you do see any sign of coolant leaking on them. Go ahead and replace. You can get them at local part stores. Dealers are bad about pushing recommended replacement parts in mileage intervals. Even if it doesn't need it. Is it losing coolant at all or look low.
