​Always make sure the engine is cool before inspecting the cooling system
Use your fingers and thumb (not the whole hand) to check for hose weakness
Squeeze near the clamps or connectors as most hose failures occur in this area
Check for any noticeable difference in feel between the middle and ends of the hose
If the end feel soft or mushy, replacement is recommended
