COOLING SYSTEM

Before checking the coolant levels you need to check the condition of hoses and belts.

Check the hoses for any cracks, minor leaks and loose connections. Hoses should be firm. Hoses suffer from a slow deterioration process, especially in the summer heat that eats away at rubber from the inside. Get them replaced if the need arises. Don’t go penny-pinching while getting them repaired. Remember, cheap rubber parts can fail again, when you are on the highway.
