Fixing a Ruptured Radiator Hose

A ruptured radiator hose can certainly bring your trip to a halt. Most auto parts stores will carry an emergency repair kit that consists of a plastic splice and two hose clamps. To use this kit just cut the hose at the rupture, insert the splice and secure with the hose clamps. Refill the radiator and head to a shop to get a new hose!
