Silicone Hose Kit, Ford F150 5.0 / EcoBoost Reservoir, Black

Click for a larger picture of Silicone Hose Kit, Ford F150 5.0 / EcoBoost Reservoir, Black

Replace the leaky, unreliable quick-disconnect elbow on the coolant reservoir of your 2011-14 Ford F150! This hose is part of the pressurized cooling system, and the clip-retained hose often leaks where it meets the reservoir. This handy kit contains all of the parts you need to replace the stock hose with a more reliable clamped connection.

Kit contents:
1x RE9025.19-Black Silicone Elbow, 1" to 3/4" 90 Degree Reducer
1x HJ19 Aluminum Hose Joiner, 3/4"
2x 3613-1.25 Lined Hose Clamps for 3/4" End
2x 3613-1.75 Lined Hose Clamps for 1" End

To install:
Remove the stock clip-retained hose from the reservoir and from the lower hose.
Install the aluminum joiner in the lower hose and secure with one small hose clamp.
Slide the small end of the reducing elbow onto the aluminum joiner, securing with one small hose clamp.
Slide the large end of the reducing elbow over the nipple on the coolant reservoir. Be sure to slide the hose far enough that you can position one of the large hose clamps above the clip slot. This is critical to prevent the hose from coming off under pressure.
Install one large hose clamp on the reducing elbow below the clip slot. This clamp will create the liquid-tight seal.
Install the second large hose clamp on the reducing elbow above the clip slot. This clamp will keep the hose in place.

Installation usually takes less than 2 hours.

DO NOT TRIM THE HOSE DOWN !!!

I found references and links to this part (and Pegasus' repair kit, which includes this hose, an aluminum hose splice and 4 properly sized & lined hose clamps) on a thread at F150 Forums. Up to now (2016), this appears to be the most effective repair for the dreaded Ford top T-Connector leak at the coolant overflow (degas) tank that affects many 2011-2015 F150's and Expeditions when they hit 30k-70k (on avg).

Warning: I thought I would "overthink" fitting this inline repair by cutting it to match the sizing of the old T-Connector I cut-off and to avoid hitting the wiring coming off a sensor at the front driver's side corner of the engine that the coolant hose curves around. Big mistake! I took 2" off the smaller diameter end and 1-1/2" off the larger end using a fresh razor blade and a hose clamp as a guide. While the smaller end still fit over the aluminum splice (in the kit), the larger end would not slip over the full length of the connection to the overflow tank (incl the old T-Connector retaining clip slot) because I had trimmed it back too much to the point the hose was already starting to reduce in ID (inside diameter). After hours struggling to turn / pull / twist the hose on, I still could not get it fully over the top ring on the tank fitting. Result: had to order another one of these.

Lesson learned: Fit the wide end of this adapter hose to the tank first. A little silicone lubricant or light oil will help. Turn the outboard side (smaller diameter, 3/4") end of this hose downward or upward from the tank connector to get around the sensor wiring to the sensor at the front end of the engine. The smaller diameter end of the hose where you splice it with the existing hose will not be horizontal / parallel to the ground. Instead, it may be angled slightly up or down from the connection at the other end (tank side) depending on which you prefer. But DO NOT trim the larger / wider (1") end of this reducer hose more than 1/2" if at all. If you look at the different color variations of this hose, you can easily see the slight bell reduction about 2/3 of the way down from the top of the hose (wide end) to the elbow. Avoid trimming that back too far. Lesson learned.

P.S. The two bottom-of-the-engine T-Connectors also have similar leak issues, although not as frequently as the top connector and tank do. Those connectors now have replacement O-Rings available at minimal cost from Ford Parts. The top connector, though, does not have a replacement O-Ring available, and you must purchase the entire hose & connector together for nearly $50. It very likely it will eventually leak again after it shakes loose at some point down the road. This hose and the associated kit solve the problem once and for all.

P.P.S. Some on the F150 Forum thread mention adding RTV sealant to the connections. Unnecessary, but extra insurance if you want it.

P.P.P.S the bleeder tube fitting at the bottom of the radiator, passenger's side, can be fit with a bleeder hose (to an empty gallon coolant jug) to drain off 1 gal of coolant so the overflow tank and top hose don't leak while you're working on them. The bleeder tube will take a 5/16" ID clear tube/hose, avail at that OTHER big-box place (the blue /gray one, not the orange one) in plumbing. Another source is on those two well-known online e-tailers, where similar sized tubing is sold as an accessory for beer brewing kits. The bleed valve is opened with either a 1mm / 3/4" wrench (older models) or a large slotted (flathead) screwdriver. FYI.

Finally stopped using coolant at a consistent slow rate. Now and then you would step out of the truck and smell coolant, never could find the leak but coolant level would drop very slowly. Apparently it was the quick disconnect on the purge tank, this kit resolved that 100%

Get your elbow grease ready!

Comments about Silicone Hose Kit, Ford F150 5.0 / EcoBoost Reservoir, Black:

Tried just muscling the large end onto the reservoir nipple.....guess I need some serious gym work cuz it was NOT gonna cooperate. After reading several reviews and finding some tips I tried a different approach. I boiled some water, placed the large end of the hose in it for about 5 minutes, shot a little lube on the nipple and in the hose, then tried to muscle it on. Still took some serious effort but at this point it was a personal challenge that I was determined not to lose. Finally got it all the way on. The rest of it was simple...cut the old hose, insert the connector, tighten the clamps. Seems pretty solid now! I refilled the reservoir but have not run the truck to test it yet. Based on everyone else's success I don't expect any more leaks though. Thanks Pegasus for saving me so much money and helping me feel a little more confident in the do-it-yourself department!!
