The small black (either rubber or plastic) hose attached to your cars blower motor is a cooling tube for the blower motor.
A hose is usually made of plastic or rubber. A pipe, on a motor vehicle is made of metal,steel, copper , galvanised. A tube is also made of metal ,but has a much thinner wall . (ie the difference between the outer diameter and the inner diameter)
follow the bottom radiator hose which goes into the engine. where the rubber house stops is the thermostat metal housing with two bolts holding it onto the engine block.
top radiator hose, Engine side, metal nippile that attaches hose to motor,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Its under the nipple Top radiator hose,, engine side,,metal nipple that attaches hose to motor,, its under the nipple,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, be sure to put the new t-stat in with the larger brass side toward the motor.
it is on the rear of the engine below the engine. There is a rubber hose coming out of the motor and the drain plug is inside the rubber hose.
right on the firewall on the driver's side you will see a rubber hose on the top, and rubber to metal hose on the bottom, and an electrical plug on the right hand side of it
If the bypass hose on the 2000 Cavalier is rubber then the hose can be cut and spliced together with a coupling to fix the leak. If the hose it metal then it will need to be replaced.

I have a leaking hose that goes from the Air Compressor to the Condenser on my 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It is the rubber part that is leaking. I was considering taking a dremel tool and carefully cutting the metal that holds the rubber onto the metal fittings and then replacing the failed rubber hose and securing it using a number of small hose clamps. This method worked with a failed transmission cooling hose and I do not see any reason it could not work with air conditioning hose. The air conditioning hose is available in bulk and some auto stores, NAPA for example, carries bulk hose of various kinds. I will probably remove the hose from the air compressor before I start to cut the metal crimp as it is very close to the other hose coming out of the compressor. Another option would be to remove the hose and take it to a place that specializes in creating hoses of various sorts. They could replace the rubber part and re-crimp it with the correct metal crimp.
that is the transmission return cooler line
be smart... be safe.... Unless you an engineer replace motor parts with the same..... the maunufactuer spent the extra money to make the part metal I'm sure there was a good reason for it.
On a 1986-2003 there is a drain hose. Look under the motor and there is a rubber hose with a worm clamp on it, it attaches to a bung on the frame. Loosen the clamp and remove the hose from the bung.
its in the intake manifiold,,follow the rubber hose from the air cleaner to motor..
it is located where the top radiator hose enters the motor, inside the bolt on metal housing that the hose clamps to.
Tree squirrels will chew on a rubber hose to they don't have anything available to do teeth trimming. Squirrels may even chew on parts of your home, patio furniture and non-metal parts of a car.
Certainly. Before you do, however, keep in mind that the line may have been metal for a reason. It may be difficult to keep a rubber one clear of moving or burning hot engine parts, or may simply have been easier to install. Give that some thought first before retrofitting it for rubber lines. If that doesn't appear to be an issue, there isn't really any reason you couldn't or shouldn't swap metal for rubber.
It is located in the top of the motor with a rubber tube/hose going to the air cleaner I believe.
Its called breather hose. It will cost you less than $ 10.00.
A heater hose (rubber) or pipe (steel).
hose pipes, rubber sheets, and cord rings
condom rubber can be used
If it is a rubber hose you need to replace it. If it is a metal piece connected to a hose, you also need to replace this.
