I need to change all of my hoses on my '01 Jetta TDI 5 spd. I did this a few years ago on my wife's TDI and there was quite a bit of research to get the correct hoses. I didn't buy them from the dealer.

Is there someone that sells a kit containing all of the hoses? Similar to the TB kits.

Thanks,
Jim

Why do you need to replace all the hoses? Shoot, my 1991 Jetta has all its original hoses... should I be worried?

I still contend that 2 baths of salt didn't do your car in :p Not sayin they didn't help it along the way though....

Actually, I am certain that did it. The entire engine compartment looked like crap after that first trip. Worse than it ever had before.

Herm, I don't have the EGR cooler anymore and it's a manual. So every other hose except for the ones associated with the EGR cooler & auto tranny.

I want to change these because of the Texas heat and year of car. It's almost 10 years old!! Also, the car's use. It's VERY important that this car is up and about ALL the time. The old 'ounce of prevention' saying.

Thanks,

The moon has a better chance of crashing into the Pacific ocean than your Volkswagen has of having coolant hose issues unless something (like fuel) leaks on them.

I'd find something else to worry about. These cars have very good hoses.

Thanks oilhammer.

Fortunately, I don't have any worries with my flawless tried and true theory of PM. However, if my theory was flawed such as the case of 'VWs have good hoses', I would in deed be worried.

I work in the petro-chemical industry as a chemist and rubber isn't as long lasting as one may think. That's precisely why the hoses on any car need to be replaced as regular PM even if the PM is every 10 years or so.

And I work in the automotive service industry, specializing in VAG products, and I am telling you your hoses are likely fine and you should concentrate your PM efforts elsewhere on your car. ;)

I have a 1991 Jetta with 340k miles, a 2001 Golf with 383k miles, and have had a 1997 Passat with 352k miles, all with original coolant hoses.

You'll find most everyone here will have similar experience as mine. If hoses on these cars (or most any other modern automobile) were problematic, the dealers would stock them.

The ONLY coolant hoses that I have EVER seen on any VAG product that needed to be replaced were ones that were contaminated with oil or fuel or something that caused them to soften and swell up.

FWIW, I have a 2002 Jetta, from Texas no less, in the shop today with 154k miles and each and every coolant hose looks as good as the day it left the factory.

OK oilhammer, I've been reading your stuff since we both joined years ago and I never thought the info you gave was 'wackey' soooooo, maybe I'll keep my hoses for another year:D .

I wasn't looking forward to changing them all anyways so I guess I should say 'Thanks'. Plus my pocket will stay a little heavier.

Be on the lookout for the same question next year:p

It's been a long, long time since I visited here. The info you gave is great! I will tighten my ac pulley tonight.

Thanks!

HermTDI, the hose that is listed as 14 in that diagram is leaking on my car, and I have been searching for a part #, but cannot find it listed anywhere besides that diagram that you have posted! Do you happen to know this part number?


thanks

Thank you for this! It's a pain to tell which ones I need since the car is in the shop and I only have pictures that I had taken to compare them with. I'm trying to order the parts myself so it's cheaper.

Herm, even though this is a resurrected 9 year old thread, I'd to request an EKTA screen for the 2004 Jetta please.

Replacing all engine compartment hoses is on my to do list.

At the moment my ETKA is down. I lost my hard drive and had to buy a new PC. Windows 10 is not compatible with ETKA .
I have a 2nd hard drive installed I just need to learn how to configure a hard drive as a Virtual drive. Then load an earlier version of Windows and ETKA on that drive. Wish I paid attention in college..

I was looking at the links above with Windy 10 using Edge no problem.
There is Explorer in it as well. (long shot)
Click on the start button (lower left) and start typing expl and you should see it pop up.
