The only "tube" running towards the back of the engine is the 90 degree hose going from the block to the head or the hose going from the head to the heater valve. No they're not expensive and take minutes to replace.

This pipe is a POS to replace in the car goes from water pump to heater pipe feed water pipes for throtle body etc

Under exhaust to the feed of the nice easy to replace heater hose the steel pipe needs to have mounts off on turbo side to get out

Thats dickface little hose blew on me last X-mas eve at 11pm and promptly expelled every last bit of coolant it could... not a huge deal but a pain all the same.

This sounds very suspicious. A dealership will replace a 20 dollar hose, instead of telling a customer about it (and loosing way more money in the sale price).

I'd check for a BHG by taking it to a garage and having a hydrocarbon test done.

The few bucks spent now, can save you countless aggravation and expense.
