Every car utilises oil hoses to pass oil to the various parts of the engine. These hoses are heat resistant as they need to be able to withstand the hot oil passing through them from the engine as well as withstand the heat inside the engine bay. Without the correct car oil hoses, the oil would drain from the vehicle causing catastrophic damage to the engine. This is why it is important to check these hoses on a regular basis.
Usually car oil hoses are strong and robust, but over years of usage they can become brittle and begin to leak or sweat oil. If this becomes evident in the car (it can usually be seen as residual oil drops found under the car) then it is a good idea to replace the oil hoses as soon as possible. Leaving the problem could result in a much more expensive engine overhaul as opposed to simply replacing the oil hoses. An easy way to determine if the oil hoses in the car need replacement is to ask your servicing mechanic to check the hoses during the annual service of the car.
If your mechanic reports that your car oil hoses are worn and leaking, it is advisable to purchase new hoses. The easiest purchase method these days is to go online and source your parts at the click of a button. By punching in the year model, make and engine size of the vehicle you will be able to source the required parts for your car. What’s more is that you can either have them delivered directly to your service department or to your home. Complete the easy online transaction and wait for your delivery.
