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.

What does a radiator hose replacement involve?

  • 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.

Should you experience problems with a radiator hose then it is advisable to have the hose inspected and, if necessary, have it replaced.

Driving with a broken radiator hose can lead to a loss of coolant and the engine overheating, which could ultimately cause severe damage to the engine. If you suspect there is any issue with a radiator hose or there are concerns about its age or condition, check with a professional mechanic immediate effect and do not drive the vehicle until the problem has been verified and fixed where necessary.
