HOSE: Describes the flexible tube used to convey liquid usually connected between independent components such as the radiator, water pump, and heater.
BRAIDED HOSE: Describes a rubber hose covered in either woven material or braided wire.
CABLE GUIDE: Describes a tube secured in place to channel the cable that runs through it
CHARGING HOSE: Describes a small diameter hose constructed to withstand high pressures.
DUCT: Describes a tube through which air, gas, or liquid is conducted.
EXPANSION TUBE: Describes a device used to convert high-pressure liquid refrigerant into low-pressure liquid refrigerant before it passes through the evaporator.
FUEL LINE: Describes the metal, plastic, or rubber hose or pipe through which the fuel passes from the fuel tank to the fuel pump to the carburettor.
MAIN-WELL TUBE: Describes a perforated tube that extends from an air bleed in the top of the air horn down into the central well to emulsify the fuel in the main well, improving response in the primary metering circuit during part throttle conditions

SHRINK TUBE: Describes a thin plastic tube whose diameter will shrink considerably when heated that is used to cover exposed wire splices.
SLEEVE: Describes a tube fitted externally over two cylindrical parts to create a semi-flexible join.
SOUNDING PIPE: Describes a type of pipe that leads to the bottom of an oil or water tank, used to measure the depth of liquid in the tank
VACUUM HOSE: Describes a hose connected to the intake manifold leading to the vacuum brake booster.
VENTURI TUBE: Describes a short tube with a constricted passage that increases the velocity and lowers the pressure of fluid conveyed from the float chamber through a discharge nozzle into a container.
CAPILLARY: Describes a very small-bore tube used for temperature gauges
CAPILLARY ACTION: Describes the ability of a liquid to move into small spaces if it can "wet" these surfaces
CAPILLARY TUBE: Describes a tube, usually gas-filled, with a precisely calibrated length and inside diameter to connect the remote bulb or coil to the expansion valve or thermostat.
