: Lower radiator hose question

07-01-08, 11:02 PM
Hello all. I picked up a Black 2006 Cts-v last month and been having a blast ever since. Today I noticed it was a bit sluggish so I did some looking around and found that the bottom radiator hose was almost total compressed. According to the vin check this car had some sort of coolant hose/pump problem that had previously been repaired. Is there an inner hose support that was left out or is my hose just hosed?

Any of the Michigan guys here recommend a good service shop?

The Lower hose is the cheap one right? I'd just get a new one either way...
