Need help with lower radiator hose - DB9

My lower hose busted and I am traveling, anyone know what size the hose is (diameter) and what coolant is compatible that I can get at a auto parts store?

I can't find my reference data on size etc. I'll check another computer and see what's on it. Doesn't sound like an easy road side fix. Good luck.

Regards,

Yeah, I saw that. It does not show the short hose that actually goes to the radiator.

Thanks

I got a hose repair kit and fixed my leak and for those wondering the inside diameter is 2". The repair kit I used came with a 1 3/4" connector, which I used and just clamped it down. Got the kit from Advance, also ordered new hoses which was just over $400 for all hoses (Ouch).

And I used Prestone Extended life, it is very close to the oem formula.
