Chosen Solution

Autozone shows that hose for $120 plus tax and the mechanics labor time is 2.0 hours. I have never done one myself, so I can't comment on how difficult they might be to replace.

Hope this helps,

I fixed mine using pool putty and stretching plumbing tape rated for hot temperatures. The fix not onlystopped the leak it reduced the vibrations causing fatigue at this union. Fix was only 10 dollars.
