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.

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.
