Radiator & Heater Hoses

Radiator and Heater hoses are responsible for carrying coolant through the engine, radiator and heater core which prevents the engine from overheating.

Over time and use, these hoses will deteriorate and it is necessary to inspect them regularly and replace them at factory scheduled intervals since, in many cases, it is not easy to detect the condition of hoses because they wear away from the inside out.  

Hoses can become brittle and crack due to time; exposure to heat further damages these hose parts.  Failed hose clamps also cause the hoses to lose their effectiveness at processing the coolant correctly.
