Continental Radiator Hoses
This 2008-2010 Mustang upper coolant hose from Continental is a great way to upgrade your engine's cooling system. This molded, pre-shaped hose is a direct fit replacement for your OEM hose and provides full flow through tight bends. Made of Versigaurd rubber this tube resists heat, ozone, and chemical coolants. Tylanar knit reinforcement provides burst limits exceeding SAE standards.
Continental is widely known for their superior automotive products. This upper coolant hose is no exception. Featuring high quality Versigaurd rubber, these hoses resist the extremities of everyday engine use.
- Meets or exceeds SAE J20R4, D1 specifications.
I ordered the following Continental hoses and belt for my 2008 S197:
1. Reservoir to radiator 2. Upper coolant 3. Lower coolant 4. Serpentine belt
They were installed as general maintenance replacements. I've had the parts on for a few weeks now, and use them during my last track session. So far, they have all held up pretty well. No leaks, no visible wear of any kind. The rubber feels to be of very good quality. Seems like they will last for a long time. As far as the serpentine or V belt goes, it appears to be of high quality, but I noticed the ribbing used on the belt is quite different then the factory Ford Motorcraft belt. That is, the Motorcraft belt ribs run directional with pulleys whereas Goodyears are cross sectioned. I decided to return the serpentine belt because the Motorcraft belts just appeared to be more in line with all the pulleys. Overall, these parts appear to be high quality parts and should last and be worry-free for years to come. Too bad LMR does not sell upper and lower heater hoses as well; I would have bought them. I would buy again.
