Q: Broken coolant hose

asked by on

The coolant hose is broke.

A broken coolant hose is always bad news as the vehicle cooling system cannot operate when the coolant level is low. If the broken portion of the hose was attached to a major component, it is likely the entire hose may need to be replaced. I would recommend having an experienced technician look over the vehicle to provide the next step.
