As your internal combustion engine functions to power your car, it generates high levels of heat. The optimal operating temperature of the engine is between 90 and 105 degrees Celsius or 195 and 220 degrees Fahrenheit. The radiator of the car is the cooling system that works to cool the engine and regulate its temperature. It releases a coolant fluid that circulates through the coolant tubes, to and from the engine. The coolant tubes carry heated coolant from the engines to the radiator, which cools it. This cooled fluid circulates back to the engine.
Coolant tubes or hoses are of two kinds, the larger sizes that circulate coolant and the smaller sizes that run along the intake manifold. The intake manifold brings air into the engine so it mixes with the fuel to burn and release energy. Since coolant hoses or tubes work at fairly high temperatures, they are built with a thick, resilient rubber material. Even so, they wear out eventually and need to be replaced.
Every time you bring the car in for routine maintenance, (oil, tires, and brakes) have your mechanic check the coolant tubes and the levels of coolant fluid. It is advisable to have your coolant hoses replaced every four or five years, even if they show no signs of wearing out. You should also consider replacing them if you intend to go on a long road trip.
If your car overheats, you risk damaging your engine or coming to a complete halt in the middle of traffic. It is essential that the coolant tubes remain functional. Have one of our expert mechanics check the clips that attach the coolant tubes to the engine and radiator to ensure that there is no leakage.
