Default What oil filter hose to use?

Hi

I have to change oil filter hoses (remotely located oil filter 4.3V6 engine). The hoses I suppose are connected from filter to engine and from filter to radiator. I found on Amazon many different hoses described as proper for my car (2000 year, 4.3, 4WD) and I do not know what should I order. Could anyone help me?

Thanks in advance, Marcin

forget about amazon, all they do is keep logged records of what your are looking for, very corrupt. head on over to rockauto.com, there u will find the oil lines you need, just have the 8th spot of your vin handy(defines your engine model). they have products at wholesale prices for the general public. i changed my oil lines in my 92, those compression fittings always wear out. im not sure on the 2000 but i needed several long extensions to get past my motor mount and reach the bolt, plus i had to slightly raise the engine(jack and some wood under the oil pan) with out taking off the mounts. its a very tight fit

I checked rockauto. So if I understand properly I hev 4 hoses connected to my oil filter - two of them from engine and two of them from engine oil cooler? So if I need to replace all hoses I should by parts number:
Dorman part # 625100 and # 625001 from rockauto?

the lines that come from your pump & pan there should only be i unit(2 lines) one is to the filter and the other to the pump. the hoses look differently so you are gonna have to look and see which looks more similar to your blazer. my 92 has two diff styles available, but one is obviously not it. now im not sure if your oil cooler is attached to the filter or if its internal. but again take a good look at the shape of whatever line you need and u cant go wrong. if you do have a internal cooler then go for both hoses anyway, its always good to change those. one goes from filter to pan(part625001) and the other to the rad (part 625100)
