Understanding Molded and Flexible Radiator Hoses

On its journey around your engine, the coolant needs strong conduits to keep it contained and pressurized. Radiator hoses provide this important service and are vital to continued motor health. That said, the various types of radiator hoses have many differences, and one of the main differences is with hose design. The two main radiator hose types include molded and flexible hoses.

Molded hoses are made to fit specific vehicles and specific radiators. As such, their shapes are fixed during the manufacturing process. In contrast, flexible hoses come in specific diameters, but have no specific shape. To avoid possible system damages, it is important for you to select the proper types of cooling hoses before you install them.

The good news is that you don't have to tackle this battle alone.
