I had my radiator replaced on 2000LS2. The tech told me there were 11 hoses that needed to replaced. That doesn,t seem right. I can't find any parts house that has more than 4 hoses listed

    I have worked on many, many Saturns, that sounds like too many to me as well. I would get a second opinion.

    Dan is right. There are coolant hoses other than the upper and lower hoses. Not 11, but all the rubber coolant hoses are 11 years old. Rubber starts to break down after 5 or so years.
