The engine of your car produces a lot of heat. Making sure that the heat that the engine produces does not affect its overall level of functionality is the job of the heater hoses. As the coolant in the engine heats up, it will be transported through the heater hoses. The heater hoses will take the coolant through the heater core, where it will be cooled down and the excess heat will be dispersed outside of the vehicle. These hoses will have to work on a constant basis in order for the engine to remain at the right temperature.

The hoses on a vehicle will usually last anywhere from 50,000 to 100,000 miles. Most of the bypass and heater hoses on a car are made of rubber. The rubber will eventually dry out and will become very brittle. Allowing these worn hoses to stay on a car will usually result in them bursting open and allowing the coolant in the engine to leak out. Usually, the heater hoses will not be inspected during the routine maintenance of a car. This means that the only time that the hoses are handled is when they are damaged and in need of replacement.

Getting the heater hoses on a car replaced is not easy and will usually require a professional to do the job. A bad heater hose will cause lower levels of engine coolant, which can lead to the car overheating and more damage being done. Addressing the issues with a car’s heater hoses is important to maintaining a high level of functionality. A properly working cooling system is a vital part of an engine running at the right temperature.

The following are some of the things that you may notice when your car’s heater hoses are in need of repair or replacement:

  • The engine is running hot on a regular basis
  • The engine will not get to the right temperature
  • There is fluid leaking from the radiator

Having high-quality replacement heater hoses put on will help to reduce the amount of trouble you have in the future with your cooling system. Be sure to speak with the professionals about the best types of hoses to put on the vehicle.

Even though my hose was the wrong size he was extremely professional and completelld my other repairs in a timely manner. Very hard working individual and would recommend him to anyone in the future. Thank you for your amazing service Gustavos and I apologize, Suzuki isn't fun working on, but your hard work was very much appreciated.
Mazda B2300 - Heater Hoses - San Antonio, Texas
Gus was prompt, efficient and professional. I was very happy to learn that he was extremely familiar with my vehicle because he had owned one and done his own maintenance on it. He was a perfect representative of Your Mechanic. He fixed the immediate problem and explaineded his recommendations for follow-on service. Because of the coolant problem, I was unable to get my truck to a repair service without towing; Your Mechanic provided the perfect solution - quick response & fast repair without leaving my driveway. I am thrilled to discover the Your Mechanic option for auto repair & maintenance and look forward to Gus' next visit towards getting my trusty old truck on top shape. Thank you for your assistance.

Noe is very honest and knowledgeable. He articulated my car’s problems in an easily understood manner and fixed the issue with ease. He took the time to explain the issue and talk me through the repair as he was doing it. The experience did not feel like the usual mechanic who takes advantage and never actually fixes anything. I would recommend his services.

Matt was fantastic. Extremely helpful, very quick and skilled repair to my mustang and all with a smile. What was particularly appreciated was the way in which Matt stayed in touch with me before his arrival and how he made himself available at all times via his cell phone. I will definitely use Matt again.

Casime was wonderful from beginning to end! I was a bit nervous at first as I never used YourMechanic.com before. But, I am certainly glad I took the chance! He fixed the problem in no time, and always kept in touch with me to let me know what was going on. I seriously could not recommend this gentlemen more. I do plan on trading this car in very soon, however, he will be the first mechanic I reach out to if and when I need a mechanic for my next car! Also, I will DEFINITELY be recommending this service as well as Casime to all my friends and family! He knows his stuff, enough said. Thanks so much Casime and YourMechanic! Dawn D
