Q: Lower radiator hose needs replacement

asked by on

Lower radiator hose needs replacement.

My car has 200000 miles.

Hello. If the lower radiator hose needs to be replaced, I would take care of it as soon as possible, as a bad radiator hose may render the vehicle undrivable if it is leaking coolant. If left unattended, a coolant leak at the hose may lead to overheating, which can cause serious engine damage.
