So this evening, it was wet, and I may have revved up the car a bit too much. Wheel spin incurred. But that probably has nothing to do with the 21 year old rubber coolant hose.

I think it had blow open, ran for about 2 minutes without coolant. Came to a stop and saw smoke. Crap I thought. It smelled like coolant, and sure enough it had all gotten out onto the exhaust manifold and boiled. Nothing left in the res.

Mind you this was like 9:30pm tonight so i couldn't see anything. Lucky I was at a friends house, I got a flash light and found the upper coolant hose that goes from the head/bleed port to the radiator blew open a small 1 inch gash. I duct taped and zipped tied it back up, filled her up with water and babied it back to campus. Seems like I caught it in time.

But my main issue that is eeuro is confusing me with what hose I need to replace.

Here are the three I found am not sure about.

7546161 according to your blue circle. Part 15 on the eeuro expanding drawing would be my guess. The part description sounds right.

Well, I got it yesterday, and put it in this afternoon.

It wasnt a exact replacement, the new one was about half an inch longer on both sides. But I dont care. It works
Heres the tear:
