Well im nearly finished UNTILL i was running the car last night for 20min and then i nearly :turd myself i thought the engine was smoking but to my surprise it was only steam:boff
i had a quick look and noticed that the small fat hose had split because of the pressure.
would this be down to the thermostat housing locking up so nothing is moving round.
when the car was running the finebut i did notice a bluge at the end of the hose where it joins up with the housing.
somone told me if i eliminate all the inside of the housing to create a though channel id have no prob's:mmmm
how much do you recon for a new hose and thermostat cost??

Don't get a top radiator hose for a Cavalier C20XE (GSi or SRi) - the one's for a Calibra are bent differently so these parts are not interchangeable.

I have a spare one for a Cally - if nobody else who's already responded can help you out, PM me!
