Radiator hose leak

Recommended Posts

Decades ago the rubber sealed against cast or steel housings now they are all aluminum which seems to enhance the issue a bit more seems like especially with lesser quality hose. I think some rubber compounds or hoses have more silicone than some other hose brands. I think some of the straight rubber hoses tend to leaks more with age and being over tightened which is why OEMs use constant torque spring clamps instead of screw clamps.
