The radiator hose transfers coolant from an engine's water pump to its radiator. On most vehicles, there is an upper hose that connects the top of the radiator to the top of the engine, and a lower hose connects the bottom of the radiator to the water pump, which keeps coolant flowing through the system. Radiator hoses often have a recommended replacement interval. If you're not sure about the interval for your vehicle, call our team at Bay State Truck Service Inc. at 413-543-5577
New radiator hoses are often inexpensive, especially compared to the cost incurred if they are not replaced proactively. A blown radiator hose can cause all coolant to leak from the engine, which can cause your vehicle to overheat. Overheated engines can suffer irreparable damage.
On a periodic basis, do a visual inspection of your radiator hoses. If you see bulging, cracking, or leaks, it's time to replace the hoses. Call Bay State Truck Service Inc. in Springfield at 413-543-5577 if you need your hoses inspected or replaced.
