Park the vehicle on a level surface and turn off the engine. Allow the engine to cool down completely.
Locate the charge air cooler in the engine bay. It’s typically mounted near the air intake area. You’ll need to install the hose between the charge air cooler outlet and the air intake tube of the engine.
Disconnect the power steering pump sleeve or overflow hose from the existing charge air cooler outlet tube to remove it. This will free up the outlet end of the charge air cooler.
Connect one end of the new hose to the outlet end of the charge air cooler. You can use hose clamps, fiber tape or zip ties to securely attach the hose.
Route the hose along the side of the engine bay toward the air intake tube. Secure the hose in places using cable ties or zip ties so that it does not chafe or hang loose.
Connect the other end of the new hose to the air intake tube. Again use hose clamps, fiber tape or zip ties to tightly and securely attach the hose.
Double check that the hose is properly installed and not kinked. It should form a straight, unobstructed path between the charge air cooler outlet and air intake tube.
Start the engine and check for any air leaks along the new hose. Ensure there are no loose connections or damaged portions of the hose before driving the vehicle.
Tighten charge air cooler hose clamps and cable ties as needed to prevent vibrations from loosening the hose. Over time, it may need further adjustment to maintain a tight seal.
