How do Coolant Hoses work?
Coolant hoses help a vehicle's coolant circulate to all of the necessary components within the system such as the radiator, water pump, heater core, engine.
Make a point of checking the coolant reservoir whenever your hood is open. If the levels start dropping for no apparent reason, that's a clear warning.
You’ll know you have a leak if you see coolant dripping from low points on the hoses or a small pool on your driveway or garage floor. Your hoses are often the culprit.
If your car's temperature gauge starts showing higher than average readings, that usually means something’s up with your cooling system. Often, it's the hoses.
If you have the hood open and notice that your hoses look swollen, cracked, or dry, it’s a good sign they’re nearing the end.
This is an advanced symptom and happens when pressurized coolant escapes from your engine while it's running. It might be a hose problem, but the radiator cap is also a prime suspect.

How urgent are coolant hose repairs?
A faulty coolant hose should be taken care of right away. It is a relatively inexpensive repair, but if not taken care of promptly, can lead to other very expensive issues. It is better to replace a coolant hose, rather wait until all the coolant leaks out causes an overheating condition with the vehicle, and then starts damaging things such as the engine.
