Radiator hoses and heater hoses should be inspected yearly and replaced when neccessary.
Change belts when they become dry enough to form small cracks across the ribs. Hoses when they feel thin when squeezed or bulge near clamps.
You should change water pump, all hoses (water hoses) and have radator checked and flushed, belts ? replace thermostst for sure. A new engine will run hotter because it is tighter and has more friction. This is cheap insurince This will help you on warrenty if something happens to the engine.
Besides the head gasket and head bolts, any other gaskets, hoses, belts and coolant damaged or lost during the process.
No, you do not have to but you should inspect the hoses and replace any that are questionable. Cracks, bulges, soft spots, are all signs they need replacing.
Only if they are bad !
Take off the belts then the hoses then the belts holding it on.
It's all about maintenance. If the fluids have been properly maintained, hoses, belts and other components replaced when there is a problem and the vehicle has been driven properly, the engine should last several hundred thousand miles. If not, all bets are off.
the hoses leading to and from your radiator might be clogged. If you had a rusty radiator, the rust may have clogged the hoses that carry the coolant. you should check all your hoses and even flush them out.
You should check belts, hoses, fluids, wiper blades, lighting, tires and tire pressure at least every oil change. Once every 3 months or 3000 miles. Which ever comes first.
D/FW Heavy Duty Parts on Irving Blvd. sells Gates belts and hoses.
Wear and tear on farm tractor parts is similar to that of other vehicles. Tires, belts, and hoses are the most commonly replaced parts on these vehicles as they are susceptible to the most usage.
changing the valve cover gasket will not fix an over heating problem u need to check out the cooling system. Radiator, water pump, hoses, belts
Simple answer would be your radiator or hoses. If you've never replaced the hoses, do it anyway. Go get a pressure test done and that'll pinpoint it if you can't. ---- NOTE: Anti-freeze wears out and needs to be replaced. A tester costs about $2. If you haven't changed the anti-freeze in 3-4 years, plan on changing it now.
Have you updated your belts and hoses as well?
Power steering hoses can be replaced if they leak.
A vehicle of that age lines should probably be all replaced and all rubber hoses checked carefully
The radiator should first be drained, then the hoses attached to the pump removed. All belts and pulleys in front of the pump must be removed. The pump is then unbolted from the engine block.
flush out heater hoses
This is a question that is impossible to give an exact dollar amount. It all depends. Are you doing it yourself or having it done. A friend of mine had his '99 Blazer v-6 replaced bc of broken valves. He replaced it with a Jasper rebuilt engine and it was around 2500$. He had all the hoses and belts and stuff like that replaced also though. That is the only thing I can tell you. Hope this helps.
Your Car Hase A Closed Cooling System. So Your Hoses Will Feel Hard While The System Is Hot. When It Cools They Should Be Somewhat Soft Without Cracks In Them Or Deteration. If They Are You Need To Have All Hoses Checked And Replaced As Required. More Engines Are Destroyed By Overheating Than Oil Loss By Far. Best To You
Power steering hoses are under pressure and have to be repaired with specialty tools. The hose either has to be repaired by a hydraulic hose company or replaced entirely.
the hose is worn and needs replaced... over time the hoses can become brittle and unstable.. sometimes these hoses are made with a coil spring inside of the straight portion of the hose, to prevent the hose from collapsing(contracting). replace the hose and that should be all you need to do.
