In Maintenance by Steves Auto Repair and Tire

There are a few indicators you may notice when you need to replace your radiator hose.

Signs that you need a new radiator hose

  • Hard cracked hoses
  • Swelling in the hoses
  • Hose feels like it is crunching when it is squeezed

The radiator is one of the most important devices in your car because it keeps the engine at its normal operating temperature.

Radiator hoses circulate coolant from the radiator when necessary. Your radiator hose can completely collapse, causing the engine to overheat and become unable to run. In extreme cases, a collapsed hose can cause the engine to burst.

Auto Insurance Tip – Insurance follows the vehicle and may impact your coverage by Ed Setliff, State Farm Insurance Agent

Before Loaning Your Vehicle You Need To Keep In Mind:

  • You are responsible for who you allow to drive your vehicle.
  • Know the person that you are lending your vehicle to. Never allow an impaired driver to operate your vehicle.
  • If another driver wrecks your vehicle, you are responsible for filing the claim and paying any applicable deductibles.
  • If the damage exceeds policy limits, you may be held liable for the additional monetary damages.

Think before you loan your auto to another person. Make sure you pass this information on to all drivers in your household. We want to keep your family properly protected and keep your premiums as low as possible.
