Last week, one of our client went to a 4S store to check his car. Because he was going to travel to a long distance. Thus he wants to make sure the car is reliable. There is really a problem that two heater hoses leak the antifreeze. The staff showed him the leakage point and suggested to change new ones. Because the heater hose will burst if doesn’t change it in time, especially when driving is a high speed. The higher the speed is, the more easier it will burst.
Is it true that heater hose leakage will cause burst?
Actually, it’s possible. Heater hose is made from rubber with a cord reinforcement. We know that antifreeze fluid is corrosive, which means the heater hose is easy to get aging. Normally the heater hose will get aging and turn soft after one year. If you choose a bad quality heater hose, the inner tube will swell. When the engine start to work, the antifreeze is in a high pressure and high temperature condition. Thus it will not be safe.
What’s the bad influence that heater hose leakage cause?
First, the antifreeze fluid is toxic, so once there is leakage it will be harmful to your health. Second, if there is serious aging in the meantime, it may burst at a high pressure. Last, it will cause poor heat dissipation if it leak to much water. Further cause the temperature is super high. Worse more, this may cause cylinder scoring, which means you have to overhaul your engine.
