Exclamation Potential Problem in Engine Bay

Today while I was drooling over the engine I found 2 figure 8 plastic clamps that secure a hose/wire/? to the upper radiator hose were loose, and I was unable to tighten them to the radiator hose. This allows the smaller hose to sag far to close to the electric fan. It appears that the wrong clamp was used. I used some black cable ties to close the clamp, and this will probably be a permanent fix. Just a quick heads up for all the gang!

Would you be able to take a quick pic of it, circle the stuff you found and post it?

Re: Potential Problem in Engine Bay

You are absolutely correct. I took some pics of it. It looks like the PCV sensor harness. The clips are very flimsy and can be easily pulled off, causing the harness to potentially be pulled into the fan and shredded. In pic1 you can see the clip closest to the vehicle left side. I've used a cable-tie to get the clip tighter over the radiator hose, then turned it a bit down to get the harness safely away from the fan.

Thanks for the tip!

Re: Potential Problem in Engine Bay

That line feeds the vacuum to the brake master cylinder. My line was fine, held on by the clips as designed. Won't come off during normal driving on my sample.

In other news, found out there aren't many coolant lines! There is the huge one that goes in and out of the radiator, and only a small line going to the overflow tank via T-Connection from the main line. The heater lines seem to be real small coming out the back of the engine underneath the turbo area.

This means my MOPAR heated washer fluid install will be quite interesting!
