My Heater core feed hose blew at this round plastic peice and an aluminum crimped sleeve. I'm not sure what it is, it looks like it has a spring inside of it. Help!!

That is a pressure reducer. I have in the past cut that out and in its place put a peice of 1/2 copper pipe and clamps until I could replace the hose.

Yeah, it's just a flow restrictor to protect the heater core at WOT. You can still get them cheap from GM. But the regular garden hose repair kit will get you by for now.
