    New Car Heater Hoses in Hamilton

    What do heater hoses do?

    Heater hose repair & replacement in Hamitlon

    Heater hoses are responsible for transferring hot coolant from the engine to the heater core which powers your car’s heater. Inside the heater core, air passes through the coolant. Due to the high temperature of the coolant, the air becomes heated, resulting in warm air entering your car’s interior. The heater hoses are usually located towards the rear of the engine on the cars firewall / bulkhead.

    The heater hoses are made of heavy-duty rubber that is designed to withstand the high temperatures of coolant. Despite the materials that are used, the heater hoses can be prone to wearing out, perishing, cracking, bulging or leaking, especially in high-mileage vehicles.

     

    Symptoms of a damaged heater hose:

    Engine overheating – A heater hose can develop leaks which cause the engine coolant to leave your engines cooling system. Eventually, this can lead to your car’s engine being unable to cool itself. Driving with an overheating engine can lead to serious damage and should be avoided as your cars engine could seize up if too hot. If you suspect that coolant is leaking from a heater hose or heater core , keep a close eye on your car’s temperature gauge and stop driving if it reaches a high level.

    Heater not working correctly – If the coolant is unable to reach the heater core, your car’s heater will not work correctly. The heater will most likely blow cold air, even when the heater settings are at higher hot levels.

    Visible engine coolant leaks under your car – You may notice small puddles of engine coolant forming under your car. This can be caused by the heater hoses leaking, as well as a variety of other cooling system problems. If you notice coolant leaks, we recommend that you get the problem diagnosed quickly before it causes more damage to your engine.
