Default Unknown Tube/Hose And CV Boot

Ive had a antifreeze leak for the last couple days and I found out the culprit seems to be a rusted out pipe/tube. Does anyone know the specific name of this? Its located right beside the oil pan. Click the image to open in full size.

Also my CV boot has ripped, I think this happened a few days ago . Heard its best to just replace the whole CV axle after its been exposed to dust/dirt/etc. What do you guys think I should do? Replace the boot or the whole CV axle.

The coolant line should go to your oil cooler. Ooooo, maybe not. It could be a heater bypass. In the top picture it looks like the oil cooler line but if the line in the second picture is the same its something different. (you may want to do a radiator flush)

Yes, replace the axle. I got mine at autozone for $49 and it has a lifetime warranty.

The coolant line was this : http://www.ebay.com/itm/141091943960...84.m1497.l2649
Got that ordered and gonna replace that myself. Gonna buy an axle and have a shop replace it I suppose. Might try and do it myself perhaps.

Make sure you replace the axle seal at the same time or you will pay for work twice

Yeah, I think I am pretty much in the same vote as you. My lower oil pan has gots to go as well. I think this is what we need.

Okay, I was hoping I would have caught ya before. I was talking to my parts manager at the dealership. He said that they go through a whack of these. Hence, why he had them in stock. Anyhoo, he said it would be in my interest to paint the tube with rocker panel/rubber paint to protect it from road debris and rocks which hit, strip the paint on it, and ultimately cause the rusting. It might be worth taking yours' back off and doing that if you live in a northern climate.
