The hose under the intake manifold is leaking. I disconnected the end that connects to the back of the water pump but cant disconnect the other end. Ave tried using a wrench to screw it off, a blow dryer to heat it up and pull it off, its too thick to cut and nothing is working. Is there a way to get the metal clamp off the other end of the hose and just replace the hose or do I have to replace the whole assembly like?

You need to remove the intake manifold. Make real sure that it's not the manifold itself leaking. That is very common.

Ive already taken the manifold off. The hose part of the assembly is busted, I saw the hose leaking before I took the manifold off. I want to know if there is a way to just replace the hose or do I have to replace the whole assembly because I cant get the other end of the hose off the assembly because of the type of clamp that's on it.

It uses a crimp fitting on the pipe and is sold as a whole unit. You can cut the crimp off the a cut off wheel but it's more reliable to replace it with the assembly.

Is it possible to replace the whole line with just a heater hose?
