Asked by Apr 25, 2015 at 10:40 PM about the 1998 Dodge Durango 4 Dr SLT 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I purchased a new radiator
flushed the system put new
thermostat in it and new water pump
now it keeps blowing a hole in the 4
inch long hoses that runs from the
water pump to the plenum/ intake
what would cause that to happen?

If its brown in color it usually means the radiator is rusting out .. You could take your car in and get a pressure test on the radiator for leaks ..If there are no leaks get the radiator flushed and just add a quality antifreeze ,no water ..
