might want to check this hose,,,
This hose was routed to close to a turbo pipe. It is the fan motor signal hose line. It is the hose that runs from the thermostat and signals the fan motor. The other 2 larger hoses go to and from the pump. Anyhow, the hose rubbed part way thru and dripped on the exhaust pipe making quite a bit of smoke. Took the hose off and gave it to NAPA counterman and had new one made in about 15 minutes. The area where the hoses are routed is kind of tight. Getting a good routing with a lot of nylon ties is important.

Beag- Since that's an 02, I'm thinking the hose routing might have moved over time. My 06 had a large hose under the engine that hung quite low; a little man handling and some zip ties improved ground clearance. I guess I should add this to the annual checklist I don't have
