Basically, I'm just looking for an EPC (electronic parts catalog) so I can go to the dealer with a list of PN and walk away without much confusion. I want to replace all coolant hoses.

I would like that for my 2nd gen, but havent seen any electronic versions. On Ebay at the moment there is one for sale right now: # 110406550690. Typing this on June 28th 09. I plan to get editions that cover my 2nd gen. Escorts, partly so I can enjoy how much money I save by doing my own work.

The one I was really looking for was the one that goes from the back of the block to the oil cooler. I used some bulk hose and just went around the intake brace with it.

If you go to the www.rockauto.com website, put in your make, year, and model (escortGT for the 1.8l engine), you can click on the Heat & AC link, then click on 'heater hose', and see little images of the 'molded' hoses, and their Gates part #'s. If you click on the image, it will enlarge. I know for the 1.9L engines, one of the heater hoses is not only an irregular shape, but is not the same diameter on both ends.

i cant place the one your talking about in my head ... not the one going into firewall heater core is it ?
Nope, it doesn't go to the heater. Just from the rear of the block. It's right under the short one that goes to the throttle body. and it snakes along the block and into the oil cooler.then one from the oil cooler goes into (or out of) the heater core. Not real sure which way the coolant runs through the lines.

And then today, I had the coolant line that comes out of the firewall side of the throttle body pop out. so I have that bypassed. Any ill effects other than longer cold start up and hard winter starts? Or maybe a performance throttle body that I can buy without such a weak link?

well, mine definitely doesn't idle at 2k, or rev poorly with the TB bypassed. what's the fitv thing you mention? is that the piece built into the intake manifold?

the fitv is the fast idle thermo valve , i guess mine only did it cause it was winter out , i by passed both the fitv and iace ( idle air contorl valve ) its the one hooked up to tb right below it , its gor if i remember right 2 coolant hoses and 1 bigger air hose that goes to H box . one of the coolant goes to fitv ( the one on bottom of plentum ) your lucky thta it doesnt rev funny cause these intake setup on these cars are so sensitive .

When I have a bit more free time I'll probably buy some bulk hose and just bypass the throttle body and just hook them up to the fitv thing. I was doing a search last night, and it looks like what happened to me, has happened to another before. I'll take a pic a little bit later.
