Here is another reason to have trained eyeballs under your car’s hood on a regular basis. This pseudo-aneurysm of the upper radiator hose could leave you stranded somewhere. When this blows…and it will, the anti-freeze coolant will leave the engine and the meltdown will begin.
Overheating aluminium engine components is extremely hard on your bank account or credit card.
Good news, though… Honda and Toyota hoses generally last beyond ten years. There may up to 10 or 12 specially molded hoses under your hood. If there is one leak here, another isn’t far away. We usually suggest replacement of all of the cooling system hoses at the same time in order to protect your entire investment.
