Upper and lower radiator hoses and all heater hoses should be checked for deterioration, leaks and loose hose clamps every 15,000 miles.
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
- Drain the radiator as detailed later in this Section.
- Loosen the hose clamps at each end of the hose to be removed.
- Working the hose back and forth, slide it off its connection and then install a new hose if necessary.
- Position the hose clamps at least 1 /4 in. from the end of the hose and tighten them.
Always make sure that the hose clamps are beyond the bead and place in the center of the clamping surface before tightening them.
