What does a Radiator Hose do?

Radiator hoses channel the coolant through the various components of the cooling system (like the radiator) and the engine. The system has several hoses that all contribute to creating a closed cooling system. Usually two hoses connect the radiator to the engine; the lower radiator hose joins the engine and water pump while the top radiator hose joins the radiator to the top of the engine pushing coolant into the engine.

How do you know there is something wrong with a Radiator Hose?

  • When steams appears around the engine bay.
  • When you can identify cracked or brittle hoses.
  • When the heater or air-conditioning doesn't perform as well as usual.
  • When there is coolant leaking from the hoses (wet patch under car).

When should you consider a Radiator Hose replacement?

Over time, a radiator hose's condition can deteriorate as it is continuously subjected to significant temperature fluctuations. Because of this it can be that a hose becomes brittle and cracks. This causes leaks leading to an inadequate supply of coolant to the system which, in turn, can lead to further expensive damage to the engine. It is therefore vital issues with the cooling system are addressed professionally and timely to prevent further damage.

Should you experience problems with a radiator hose then it is advisable to have the hose inspected and, if necessary, have it replaced. Remember, hoses should always be serviced as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.

What happens during a Radiator Hose replacement?

  • Mechanic will read the ECU for possible fault codes related to the cooling system.
  • Mechanic will inspect the cooling system and hoses as well as perform a pressure test of the cooling system to check for leaks.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the damaged radiator hoses.
  • Mechanic will advise if any other parts need to be replaced.
  • Mechanic will refill the cooling system.
  • Mechanic will bleed the cooling system.
  • Mechanic will inspect the cooling system once again for leaks.
