cost to replace fast idle hose?

Hi all,
A couple months ago my fast idle adjuster was leaking so I replaced the O-ring and it is fine. However, the coolant hose that attaches to it has weakened and leaks at the clasp. I do not think there is enough hose to snip off the end and re-attach it. I may try using a hose coupler and a piece of new hose.

This is the hose that goes on the throttle body and pumps coolant in.

Can someone tell me the name of this hose? I did an Internet search but could only find the fast idle assembly and not the hose. Is this hose difficult to replace?

Thanks!
Jamie

I bought a section of hose at lunch today and now am wondering if anyone knows if that 3-inch section of rubber hose from the throttle body to the metal tubing can just be removed and replaced, or is it sealed to the metal tube?

bump ^

Anyone know if I can just pull off that 3-inch hose section going to the throttle body, or will that ruin the tubing and hose seal?

Thanks.It was not in that diagram, but in another, it is called the Idle Control Valve.

The image below is my throttle body. beside the body is the valve that was leaking. The metal tube on the bottom left with the black coating is the tube that pipes in water from the radiator through this valve. At the end of the metal tube carrying radiator fluid is 3 inches of rubber hose. Mine leaks and there is no slack to trim the tube and re-connect. I'll try and snap a shot of this on the truck and post later. I fixed the O-ring on the valve. Now the rubber hose connecting to it is leaking and needs to be replaced.

Thanks!
jamie

The O-ring I purchased at the local parts store. I removed the valve and took it to the store to match it up with an O-ring.

You do not have to remove the entire assembly, but because that was my first time and I had no idea what was involved, I removed the assembly because it is quite simple to. Detach a few hoses and I think 4 nuts and it's off.

To do it with the assembly attached, get about a 6-10 inch piece of coat hanger wire, cock the spring lever wide open, wire it up to stay back and then just remove the valve and replace the O-ring.

Be sure to check the bottom hose for leaks, it can get soft at the connection and leak as well. That is what I need to address. That bottom hose is so short, i am not sure if I can snip the end and still have enough left to reach the connection.
