Pipes and hoses car parts - all important information about operating method, mounting, diagnostics and service life

Pipes and hoses are components of a vehicle's hydraulic systems. They transport working fluid from unit to unit. These parts are also used to supply air and carry gases away. They are widely used in the air inlet, crankcase ventilation, and fuel tank systems.

Design of pipes and hoses

Hoses are flexible tubes made of elastic polymer material. They are often equipped with connectors and fittings so they can be attached to other system elements. For improved strength, they can be reinforced with synthetic fibres or metal mesh. The material for their production is selected according to the working environment they will be used in. For example, products for the fuel system should be made of oil and fuel-resistant materials. Spare parts that supply coolant to the radiator should be made of a heat-resistant material.

Pipes are made of plastic or silicone. They often have a curved shape determined by the location of the units.

Metal pipes are used in assemblies which require components resistant to temperatures of several hundred degrees.

Maintenance tips

  • Make sure the components are appropriate for the conditions in which they are going to be used.
  • Tighten the clamps from time to time. Be careful when tightening them so as not to damage the components.
  • Replace working fluids in a timely manner. Dirt accumulated in these fluids is detrimental to the product material.
  • Note that all products are exposed to natural wear, regardless of whether you use your car or not. Therefore, they should be replaced every 4-5 years.
  • Try to buy spare parts with protection against electrochemical damage. They last longer.

Signs of malfunction

A reduced working fluid level, leaking fluid, or puddles beneath the vehicle are signs of cracked components used in hydraulic systems. When these products are used in drives, more effort is required to activate the corresponding mechanism, such as the clutch or brakes. The same symptoms can be observed in case of corroded fittings if the integrity of joints is impaired. A loss of elasticity in components can be detected by touch. Cracked air intake hoses cause the system to suck in too much air. As a result, the engine malfunctions and stalls right after starting. Fuel consumption increases.

Clogged fuel pipes and hoses can cause serious engine malfunctions. If the fuel tank vent hose is clogged, the engines of some vehicles won’t start at all.

Causes of malfunction

The products may crack due to temperature fluctuations, overheating of parts, or exposure to aggressive chemicals, such as inappropriate additives. The components of the engine cooling system are prone to electrochemical degradation.

Furthermore, the integrity of the components can be impaired when they’re exposed to overpressure, for example, due to the airlocks in the system and boiling of the working fluid.

Some malfunctions can be a result of improper installation. If a part is twisted during mounting, it will fail shortly after. You shouldn’t overtighten the fasteners either.
