One of the key factors of keeping your engine running smooth and hassle-free is your cooling system. If your engine overheats, it could cost you a ton of time and money to get it back on the road. So you need to take the time to make sure your cooling system is working properly and a key component that should not be overlooked is the coolant tubes.
Coolant tubes come in a variety of sizes for all types of trucks such as Freightliner, Kenworth, Peterbilt, Western Star, Mack and many more. The main purpose of a coolant tube is to allow engine coolant to move to the outlets and inlets. Coolant tubes can be made from a variety of materials, but the ones at Southpointe Radiator are made from quality stainless steel which makes the tube much more reliable.
Signs of Bad Coolant Tubes
There are some tell-tale signs of a bad coolant tube. The first sign would be low coolant in the system. If your coolant tube has a crack or leak, then radiator fluid would be leaking causing lower levels. Another more obvious sign would be seeing the leak yourself. Of course, fluid dripping from your tube is never a good sign.
In addition to low fluids, your engine overheating is a sure sign of a problem. Prolonged use of an overheating engine can cause serious problems and big money for repairs if not looked at right away.
