    My ex boyfriend and a friend of his, have all but ruined my car. Hoses are routed ALL OVER THE PLACE IN WRONG DIRECTIONS. I really really really need some help figuring out what Hoses actually go where. I have replaced the valve cover gaskets, intake gaskets, plugs, wires, thermostat, cylinder head temp sensor, egr. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You might check and see if there are any V6 LSes in your local pick-n-pull junkyards that still have the engine and plumbing intact to look at, but I think the odds are low. Maybe someone here with the V6 can take some detailed pictures for you.
    Are you in upper or lower Al?

    I have the factory service manual. I'll check, but I don't think it has the level of detail that you will need. Apart from another member with pictures, you might see if any 1st gen V6s are for sale in your area and have a good look (and take pictures) under the hood as part of your "inspection" of the cars.

    I will look to see if there may be any for sale, like you're talking about. I hadn't thought to try that!

      If it is these two hoses, can you tell me where the smaller hose is running to? Does it go to the degas bottle? And if so, which one of two lines is that? The one closest to the firewall? Or the one in front of it?

      Not sure if the video is still on YouTube but the video showed how to replace the radiator on a V6 and the guy disconnected all the hoses ...might be worth checking to see if this video still exists

          if you're referring to this hose, it goes down to a plastic "T" that's under the intake tube. there's a small nipple on that "T", if you don't see it, it's probably broke because its real easy to do that......I know because i broke mine.
