View Full Version : Is this where the hose from hell is?

10-05-2013, 03:16 PM
Today I notice some smoke coming from under my hood and thought I had a fire! But when I opened my hood carefully, I found a hose just down under the turbo about 1" around with a 90degree bend in it with a pin whole in it, spurting a streams of coolant on to the exhaust side of the turbo mounting to the down pipe. Is this the Hose from Hell? Because to fix this, it looks like I will have to take my turbo off to get to it. Am I right in this conclusion?

If you're pulling the turbo, which is probably the easiest way to do this, go ahead and replace both. This has to be one of the stupidest designs Toyota has ever done.

I was going to replace every hose that is around that area just to be on the safe side. Thanks all, Jack
