Molded Coolant Hose
Our molded coolant hoses are manufactured to fit specific applications with OEM-quality specifications, saving you time, costs, and energy from going to your OE dealer for radiator hose replacements.
- Temperature: -40°C to 135°C (-40°F to 275°F)
- Recommended for upper, lower, by-pass, heater and other coolant hose applications
- Approved for marine applications
- Note: Gates recommends replacing hose clamps each time a new coolant hose is installed

When creating our FleetRunner™ Coolant Hose, we wanted to tackle the leading cause of hose failure: electrochemical degradation or ECD. This occurs when the hose, liquid coolant, and engine/radiator ﬁttings form a galvanic cell or "battery," creating a chemical reaction that allows micro-cracks to form in the hose tube. Coolant seeps into these cracks or striations and breaks down the reinforcement, leading to hose failure and, ultimately, roadside breakdowns.
We worked to engineer our EPDM coolant hose material compound with superior electrochemical resistance, so your Gates® coolant hoses will last longer and keep your engine systems running stronger.
Features and Benefits
