Q: What's involved in changing the radiator hoses?

asked by on

How do you get to the hose connection on the engine? You can't see it from above.

My car has 115000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

If access is poor from above, you may get a better angle if you raise the vehicle and support it with jack stands to get to things from the bottom. I like to use a mirror to see into hard to reach places. If you need help with this repair, consider hiring one of our mobile experts to assist you with replacing your radiator hose.
