Default Help identify a coolant hose

Hey my friends,

It's been in the high-90s here in Spokane for the last week and today a coolant hose blew.

Would someone mind helping me identify which hose it is I need to order? This is on the passenger side of the engine.

Thank you!

Well sir, I'm no expert but I'm pretty sure those are not coolant lines. Those are breather lines from your valve covers.

Valve cover breather hoses, not coolant lines and do not carry coolant.

Awesome, thank you.
That must not be the source, then.

There is a crack on that hose, should I still replace it immediately?

I would. It will be very easy to fix. Just buy some oil/gas line from Lowe's and replace it.

Awesome. Thank you.

Last question: I'm assuming it might be the thermostat then?
If so, where is the location on a 2006 Legacy GT?

Here are some pictures of from where the leak appeared to come from/spray pattern:

Your t stat will be under the car. The bottom hose of their radiator will lead to it. But from the pictures it looks like your top radiator hose busted or possibly something on your coolant reservoir.

Could be the radiator. They tend to crack on the lgt.
