Quick Fix: How to Replace the Radiator Hose

Your car's radiator, is connected to the engine through the radiator hose. If the radiator hose is leaking or damaged, it will be difficult for the radiator to regulate engine temperature. If your car's radiator hose is damaged, you have to replace it immediately. This guide will teach you how you can replace the radiator hose without visiting a mechanic.

Difficulty level: Moderate

Tools needed:

  • New radiator hose
  • OE recommended coolant
  • Water
  • Flathead screwdriver
  • Utility knife
  • Bucket

Safety Tip: Always make sure that your car's engine is cool before replacing the radiator hose. Your car's coolant system is usually hot and may scald you if you're not careful.

Step 1: Place the bucket under the radiator. Then, at the bottom of the radiator, locate the drain plug. Unscrew it to drain the radiator.

Step 2: To remove the hose clamps at the ends of the radiator hose, use a flathead screwdriver. In some cases, a utility knife is needed to remove the hose completely.

Step 3: Attach the hose clamps on the new radiator hose. Then, put the new radiator hose in correct position. Don't forget to secure it by tightening the hose clamps.

Step 4: In a separate bucket, mix equal amounts of coolant and water to fill the radiator again. You can use premixed coolant or pure coolant mixed with water. Always remember to use OE recommended coolant.

Step 5: Leave the radiator open. Then, start your car, and turn its heat to maximum level. Do this by pressing the gas and holding down for ten seconds at least twice or thrice.

Step 6: Put the radiator cap back. Your car now has a new radiator hose!

Quick Reminder: Automobile experts recommend that radiator hoses be replaced every four years or 60,000 miles.

Radiator Hose Buyer's Guide

Summary

  • A radiator hose is a type of rubber hose that is responsible for circulating coolant in and out of the radiator. The upper radiator hose carries coolant to and from the radiator. 
  • At the end of the cooling process, the lower radiator hose carries coolant from the radiator back to the water pump. 
  • Universal radiator hoses are straight rubber hoses that are usually used when no bending or curve is needed to install them.
  • Molded radiator hoses are curved to fit certain specifications. Most radiator hoses nowadays belong to this type.
  • Symptoms of a faulty radiator hose include coolant leaks, overheating, low coolant levels, and visible rust or discoloration.
  • A typical radiator hose replacement will cost you around $50 to $250. To ensure that you are getting the right fit, enter the correct vehicle details into our built-in search tool. 


Your engine’s cooling systemkeeps your engine running at an optimal temperature and prevents your vehicle from overheating. A cooling system is composed of different components like a radiator, a water pump, and a cooling fan. These components work together to maintain your engine’s temperature at an ideal level.

If you have an idea about how the cooling system works, you would know that a cooling system will not work without a substance called a coolant. How does this substance flow in and out of the radiator? This is where the role of a radiator hose comes in. In this article, you will learn more about radiator hoses and their role in the cooling system. 

What is a radiator hose? 

To put it simply, a radiator hose is a kind of rubber hose that is responsible for circulating coolant in and out of the radiator during the engine’s cooling process. 

Engine Cooling System 

To fully understand the role of a radiator hose, you will need to understand the basics of an engine cooling system.  Your engine’s coolant travels from the water pump to the tubes inside the engine block. This is where the coolant collects the heat produced by the cylinders before it flows to the thermostat. If the engine is warm enough, the thermostat will allow the valve to open, letting your coolant flow to the upper radiator hose and into the radiator. 

A radiator is a type of heat exchanger that transfers heat from the hot coolant into the air being blown by your engine’s cooling fan. This is where the role of the second type of radiator hose comes in. Your coolant will now flow out of the radiator through the lower radiator hose and into the water pump. This process goes on and on as long as your engine is running. 

Types of Radiator Hose

As mentioned in the section above, there are two major types of radiator hose: an upper radiator hose and a lower radiator hose. The upper radiator hose carries coolant from the thermostat and into the radiator A lower radiator hose, on the other hand, carries coolant from the radiator and back to the water pump.

When shopping for a radiator hose, you may encounter the term universal and molded hoses.  What is the difference between the two? 

Universal Radiator Hoses

Universal radiator hoses are often used as a lower radiator hose or as a heater hose. They refer to straight rubber hoses that are usually used when no bending or curve is needed to install them. A universal radiator hose can only be used in instances where the hose will not interfere or come into contact with other engine components and cause problems. 

Molded Radiator Hoses 

Most automotive hoses manufactured nowadays are molded. This means that they are molded or curved to fit certain specifications so you do not have to worry about your radiator hose kinking or coming into contact with other engine components.  Since they are specifically molded, they cannot be interchanged with other hoses in the engine or used for another type of vehicle. Some molded radiator hoses are branched. They come with the main hose and an additional smaller branched hose. 

The type of hose that you should buy will greatly depend on your vehicle’s year, make, and model. Also, it is dependent on the type of radiator hose that needs replacement. Make sure to consider these things and check the type of radiator hose in the product specification before buying one. 

What are the symptoms of a faulty radiator hose? 

Your vehicle’s radiator is an important component of your vehicle’s cooling system. Just like any other car part, components inside your hood can get damaged over time. If you suspect that there is something wrong with your car’s radiator, try checking the radiator hoses first. A lot of radiator related issues are due to a faulty radiator hose or clamp. 

Here are the common symptoms of a faulty radiator hose: 

Coolant Leak

If you find a red, yellow or green fluid underneath your vehicle, this is an obvious sign that your coolant is leaking. This may be a result of a worn-out radiator hose. A broken or an incorrectly fastened radiator clamp may also cause this problem. 

Usually, a radiator hose leak can easily be solved by replacing the damaged radiator hose or clamp. Although there are many self-help videos online on how to replace your radiator hose and clamps, it is best to have a trusted professional do it for you. 

Overheating

Overheating may be a symptom of any faulty component in your cooling system but oftentimes, it may also be associated with lack of coolant due to leaks in the radiator hose. This symptom should not be ignored because frequent overheating may cause other engine components to get damaged over time. 

Low Coolant 

If your low coolant light is flashing more often than usual, this may be a tell-tale sign that something is wrong with your radiator hose. When this happens, it is best to check for leaks underneath your vehicle. You may also want to visually inspect your radiator hose and clamps for damages. 

Rust 

A coolant leak that is ongoing or constant may lead to rust or discoloration of other components inside the engine. When doing other repair works under the hood, take it as an opportunity to visually inspect your engine components for rust or discoloration. 

Collapsed Radiator Hose 

If you happen to look under the hood and notice that the radiator hose is collapsed, this is a clear sign that it needs replacement. This means that the hose is too soft or weak and it may disrupt coolant flow. Eventually, this will lead to overheating and engine damage, so it is best to have the hose replaced right away. 

Aside from the symptoms mentioned above, you may also want to visually inspect your radiator hose for tears or damage. Remember that your radiator hose is integral for coolant to run property through the system and it is important to make sure that it is always in good condition. 

How much does a radiator hose replacement cost?

A typical radiator hose can cost you around $50 to $250. Some are priced more than that, depending on the brand and type of radiator hose you need to buy. Radiator hoses can be sold individually, in sets of two, or as part of a kit. 

Finding the right fit

Before buying a radiator hose, make sure to double-check the product specification to ensure that it is compatible with your vehicle. There are universal hoses available for you to purchase but most are vehicle-specific Some of the products may also require minor modification to fit your vehicle.
