Default coolant hoses

Who fabricates the coolant hoses for the S series? How long have some you gone on the original hoses?

Who makes 'em? I dunno.

I have a 1995 SL1 with 186,000 miles on it and I am still running the original hoses and thermostat. The hoses still look and feel new.

If you notice your hoses are swollen, cracking, etc., just replace 'em with OEM hoses from Saturn. They aren't that expensive from the dealer (replaced one on my '92 SC when it was looking swollen on one end), unlike parts for Japanese cars (can you say Honda?), which I've had my share of experience with.

Replace any hose that looks like it's going south; it's inexpensive compared with towing charges, middle-of-nowhere garage parts and labor costs, and (particularly) possible engine damage from overheating if one goes on you.

ALOT DEPENDS ON HOW MUCH TIME YOU SPEND UNDER THE HOOD. I HAVE SEEN WELL OVER 100,000 MILE SATURNS WITH OE HOSES. I HAVE ALSO SEEN IN 1995 VEHICLES WITH BLOWN UPPER HOSES. IT IS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. BOTH HOSE AT SATURN WILL RUN APPROX. $7.00 EACH. PLUS LABOR.
