Why does an antifreeze fluid pipe burst?

An antifreeze fluid pipe may burst because of aging rubber pipe, insufficient antifreeze fluid, or high pressure in the cooling system.

Aging rubber pipe: The rubber material may age due to long exposure to ultraviolet rays in scorching sunlight or chemicals. Strong sunlight and high temperature of the engine can accelerate evaporation or transmutation of rubber ingredients and cause the rubber to harden or crack.

Solution: Inspect the damaged part, replace the rubber pipe, and replenish antifreeze fluid in time.

Insufficient antifreeze fluid: Insufficient antifreeze fluid may easily lead to overheat and even damage of the engine. The engine normally works in the temperature range between 90℃ and 120℃. Lack of antifreeze fluid can result in engine overheat or burst of the antifreeze pipe.

Solution: Replenish the antifreeze fluid in time.

High pressure in the cooling system: The high pressure may be caused by high temperature or air leakage of the cylinder gasket.

Solution: Have the car maintained at a 4S shop in time.
