Most vehicles will use an upper hose that goes from the radiator to the thermostat, and a lower hose that
supplies coolant from the water pump to the radiator. A failed radiator hose can mean overheating and damage to
your engine. We make finding a replacement radiator hose a breeze. Shop Advance for more than 3,000 varieties of
coolant hoses from high-quality brands like Carquest by Dayco and Goodyear.
The radiator hoses are the pathways for coolant to flow from the hot engine to the radiator and then back to
the engine. It's a fat hose that's formed to fit the radiator neck and the inlet on the engine (with a
smaller hose at the bottom of the radiator) with a thick fabric-reinforced rubberized wall. Radiator hoses
can last for a long time, but that doesn't mean they can't fail. If you find yourself needing to replace the
radiator hose, remember to take a wire brush and thoroughly clean and remove corrosion from the hose necks,
both on the radiator and engine inlet, and make sure the hose clamps are tight and secure.
