How Long Does an Oil Return Hose Last?

oil return hose

For a driver that is looking for more performance and speed, choosing a car with a turbo system is just what they need. The turbo systems that come with most cars give it a boost when needed. Just like any other part on a car, the turbo system on your car will have to receive maintenance to ensure that it works properly. With all of the different parts of the turbo system, you may have a hard time keeping up with everything. The oil return hose is a vital element of your turbo system. It helps to supply the unit with the lubrication that it needs to run smoothly. Without the proper amount of lubrication, the turbo unit may start to have issues and break down.

These hoses are usually made of braided metal or in some cases rubber. The amount of heat that these hoses are exposed to can be damaging over time. When the time comes to get these hoses replace, you will have to act quickly in order to keep your turbo unit protected. In most cases, you will not have much interaction with this part of your car until there is a repair issue with it. Keeping an eye peeled for warning signs can allow you to catch issues with this part of a car as quickly as possible.

The importance of this part is one of the main reasons why getting a professional to handle replacing oil return hose is a smart move. The last thing that you want to do is to mess things up even worse by trying to handle this repair on your own. Getting a new high-quality hose installed by a professional will help to keep your turbo unit working efficiently.

The following are some of the signs that you may notice when your oil return hose is damaged:

  • There are cracks in the rubber of the hose
  • Visible bulges in the hose
  • A brittle feeling to the hose when you touch it

If you start to see visible damage to the hose, it is best to replace it before it actually bursts. Taking this type of preventative measure can save you a lot of time and money.
