Re: Radiator Hoses
Its not so much the mileage, its the age.condition of coolant also plays a part. Dont by Cheap hoses youll be sorry,(discount auto parts,autozone,etc.)get GATES or DAYCO if you can. they are electrically rated cause its static electricity that passes through the hoses that cause them to deteriorate faster(Steve can probably explain it better). Look for ECR printed on the hose along with a lightning bolt on the Gates anyways.I had some cheap heater hose go bad in 6 months! The radiator hoses on my wifes 93 mazda were shot at 40K but they were also 7 years old.
Water over Oil Cooler on a stock bronc? Not familiar with that...Hmmm
BTW, unless your really hauling something heavy, why would you need a oil cooler in canada?
