Heater Hose

Heater hoses are rubber hoses, which are designed to carry hot coolant from the engine, to the heater core, and then back again once it has been used and cooled, in the heater core. These hoses are one of the most common sources of a coolant leak,under the hood. A heater hose will typically leak around the ends of the hose, where they are clamped. Heater hoses that are swollen,brittle, spongy, or hard, should be changed. Heater hoses that are very soft or squishy, can indicate an overheating engine, or an oil leak in the engine, that is dripping onto the hose. Hoses should be changed every four or five years,in order to prevent a leak or break, which can lead to serious problems. The average width of a heater hose is 5/8 inches, internal diameter. Some vehicles use a 1/2 inch or 3/4 inch hose, for the heater hose as well.
