Failed coolant hose

While stuck in traffic on the George Washington Bridge, my coolant hose on top of my engine failed. Any thoughts on where to purchase a replacement at a reasonable price?

Sorry the pic is upside down, you can see where it failed in the photo just below the clamp, you can see the frayed hose.

Thanks!

One suggestion is go to the auto parts shop and look at their wall of hoses. You could probably find one that has the bends and straight sections that will fit your needs, then cut to the proper lengths. Take one of your hoses and measure the inside diameter, and find the same. Don't be tempted to buy something that "almost fits".

Since you have to pull the intake plenum, it's best to change then all.

Replaced all mine with silicone, pretty standard. I think there was a 20degree bend piece I had to have made up, otherwise it all came from what they already made. Removing the pipes under the bottom of the car was the fun part!!! Glad I did though.

If you are removing the plenum.... Don't drop the anti crush washers from the plenum gasket s down the engine intakes and into the engine. Count them all out.
I have made a video called plenum removal on YouTube 'thehelidoctor' is the channel.

And to be honest whilst it all takes time, if you have the plenum off you might as well take the rad out and flush and treat as required, including check the pads and any corrosion. Similar illy, depending upon what you did last with the water pump, it strips easy and the gaskets are not difficult to replace. Of course, where to draw the line..... but there's surely mothering worse than doing 80% and finding the new weakest link is the one old bit you didn't touch, and you have to drain it again....
