The Basics Behind Radiator Hose Replacement Services

TThere are two radiator hoses on a vehicle, both of which are made of rubber and aid in carrying coolant to and from the radiator. Each hose is vital to the engine. The upper hose plays its role by moving the hot coolant from the engine to the radiator. The coolant then passes through the radiator, sheds heat, and exits at the bottom of the radiator through the lower radiator hose. This brings the cooled fluid back to the engine. Replacement for radiator hoses can vary significantly from vehicle to vehicle. Since the hoses are made from rubber they will eventually degrade and start leaking. If they do not fail from age, they will often fail from contamination from an oil leak. Oil leaks cause the rubber hose to swell and weaken.

Why Should You Have Radiator Hose Replacement Services Performed

A coolant leak from a damaged hose is a sign to replace the radiator hose. Do not drive the vehicle with a leaking or damaged radiator hose. When a radiator hose fails while driving the vehicle the engine will overheat and lead to additional repairs and cost. A repair shop can visually inspect the radiator hoses for leaking, cracking, or any swelling. A pressure test might be performed to ensure the system is adequately sealed. The technician at the auto repair shop will physically check the hoses by touch. An overly soft hose is more often contaminated with oil and will eventually fail.
