I have a 1994 Dodge Grand Caravan LE with the 3.8L engine. I'm looking for a replacement for the coolant tubes running underneath the van, back to the auxiliary heater. Mine are heavily rusted and won't last much longer. The links below show it's no longer available. Any other sources?

Thanks!

Welcome to the site.
I had to replace mine after only a few years on the 94 that I bought new because of the amount of road salt they use in Michigan.
I coated the replacement lines with undercoating. It didn’t help at all and they rusted out just as fast.
About 15 years ago I replaced the metal lines with heavy duty 5/8 rubber hose and hung them tight to the underbody with plastic supports. I haven’t had any more issues.
