    Wire Inserted Green Stripe® Coolant Hose

    Gates® Wire Inserted Green Stripe® Hose is designed for demanding heavy-duty coolant/air applications. Reinforced with a heavy-duty fabric reinforcement and a helical carbon steel wire. The wire bends easily to make curved connections and cuts easily with a knife and wire cutters - reducing installation time.

    • Heavy-duty fabric reinforcement with helical carbon steel wire allows easy bends.
    • Engineered with compounds which resist electrochemical degradation.
    • Exceeds SAE 20R2 Type EC (Class D2 Tube and cover) except in vacuum applications.
    • Temperature Range: -40°C to +125°C (-40°F to +257°F).


    As part of our Be System Part initiative, we recommend regularly inspecting your critical vehicle systems, including your cooling system and hoses, at around 60,000 miles. As your coolant hose begins to age, the constant transfer of chemical fluids will corrode your hose from the inside out. When inspecting your coolant hose, there are a few simple signs that it's ready for replacement: Press for Soft Spots. The radiator hose is naturally rigid, and any soft spots along the hose body indicates the inner material has begun to break down. Firmly press on the hose body to feel for potential deteriorations. Check the Ends and Fittings. Look for cracks around the hose end, especially near the hose clamps. Feel for Bulges. Run your hands along the hose body to feel for protruding materials, which indicate a rupture within the hose that will eventually lead to failure.


    In order for your engine to perform at its highest level, and remain durable through the years, you need a cooling system water pump that will work as hard as the rest of the engine. Gates® premium, tested, OE-equivalent water pumps make the job look easy and get you where you're going.
