Yes, lower hose is much cooler as I just did find out this morning! Huh? I'm surprised tensioner doesn't come withStandard dealer timing belt job is timing belt, water pump, and coolant. Add-ons appear to be tensioner, cam seals, and serpentine belt. I could see the thermostat and hoses being suggested to change during a radiator replacement,
And the lower radiator hose should be cooler than the upper after and extended drive since the radiator is removing heat from the coolant.
TB replacement! Thanks.
