Coolant top or bottom hose split or is a heater hose leaking?

Then come to Auto Experts Medway in Chatham, near Gillingham and Rochester in Medway for coolant problems.

Coolant Hoses:

Heater or coolant hoses are a rubber hose used in vehicles, and it transports hot coolant to the radiator or heater matrix.

Over time, as with most rubber products, the top or bottom radiator hoses or heater hoses might become brittle because of extreme heat and age. This might cause a hose to fail. Leaking coolant problems can cause an engine to overheat. To prevent this from happening, vehicle owners should have the hose inspected annually for cracks, swollen areas or splits that could lead the hose to failure.

The engine should be allowed to completely cool down before one attempts to inspect or replace a coolant hoses. Exposure to the extremely hot coolant will cause serious bodily injury. Radiator coolant should be handled with care, because it is extremely poisonous.
