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.
