Vehicle Radiator HoseThese vehicle radiator hoses are used in a variety of vehicle, including tractors and trucks, with one of the most popular needs being a flexible car radiator hose that is able to be used for numerous types and brands of cars. Overall there are two hoses that connect the radiator. One attaching from the top of the radiator to the top of the engine, the other from the bottom of the radiator connecting to the engine water pump. Both hoses are responsible for delivering the coolant to the radiator and transferring it back to the engine. Once the temperature of the engine is regulated after the delivery of the coolant from the upper hose, the lower hose helps to start the cycle again by transferring it out of the engine.
It’s important that both hoses are impenetrable, so the whole process can run smoothly. These hoses will need replacing if there are any cracks or bursts so that the coolant doesn’t leak out during any point of the cycle.
There are a number of symptoms you can look out for to tell if these hoses need replacing:
· Leaking coolant
· Low coolant levels (indicated by the light on the dashboard)
· Overheating engine
· Visible collapse or damage to the hose
This particular range of hose is constructed from a black, anti-freeze, heat and weather resistant EPDM rubber, with synthetic textile reinforcement.
