What Are Radiator Hoses Every car comes with a cooling system that is responsible for offering cool air in summer.

How They Work The radiator hoses are two in number the upper and the lower hose. Both are capable of managing immense heat and high pressure. They are also thick. In order to find out the issues with the radiator hoses it is important to know how they work. In some engines the coolant is pushed through the top hose whereas in others it is done through the lower hose. Thus one side of the hose has more pressure as compared to the other. It is reported that the hose is clogged usually when it is not working properly. Thus the drivers should know which hose serves what purpose.
