Each Mercedes model has a variety of hoses. Hoses are used to carry various gasses and fluids from one location to another on the car. Types of hoses include fuel hoses, oxygen hoses, coolant hoses, and fluid hoses. Different types of hoses are required for each type of fluids and gasses. When the hoses get too soft, bulge, brittle too hard, split or crack, they are too old and have the potential to leak and cause problems so these need to be replaced at a regular interval as set by the factory maintenance schedule. Linear Automotive proudly uses recommended factory OEM parts and fluids for Mercedes service and repairs.
The most common hoses that we often think of are the radiator / coolant hoses that are seen when the hood is first opened. These are specifically designed with a thick rubber and use clamps to secure the ends. There is an upper and lower hose. These move coolant from the radiator to the engine to cool it and on its return they get extremely hot and carry heat back into the radiator to cool. These hoses can have layers of rubber and possibly structural braids or cords on the inside to increase durability and prevent stretching. Extreme care needs to be taken if the home mechanic decides to replace any of the hoses. Sometimes the hoses are so worn that they stick to the component and are difficult to remove. It is a common occurrence that the component that a hose is attached to is broken by using too much force to remove the hose. The project then ends up costing more to repair because of the added broken component. This is a more common occurrence with the heater core hoses, since they get so hot that they adhere to the part.
When the carburetor engines were replaced by fuel injectors, the fuel lines went from rubber hoses to high pressure hoses to accommodate the fuel pressure added to the lines to move the fuel from one end of the vehicle to the engine fuel injectors. Another type of hose can carry oxygen from the air filter to the intake manifold for the fuel injectors, spark and oxygen to make the formula complete for the combustion of the engine. Engine oil does not use hoses because it is too caustic and is contained only in the engine head and block. Refrigerant for the air conditioner is also very caustic to rubber and is moved by metal tubing. Another case is where the exhaust gasses are too hot when exiting the engine and so metal pipes are used.
Diesel fuel hoses with their lubrication oils can degrade rubber in older vehicles and need regular replacement including any fuel pump seals. Some specialized hoses today are designed for biodiesel fuels and also for low sulphur diesel fuels. Choosing the wrong hose type for the application can have adverse effects or even be dangerous. Hoses are rated for various applications. Types of hoses include solid aluminum or metal, rubber, plastic or braided stainless steel. Some high-strength auto hoses are made of rubber and plastic that that are lined with rubber to stave off static electricity.
Other hoses include the power steering hoses, brake lines are also hoses and the air suspension ABC or Active Body Control system hoses for the electro-hydraulic suspension. Some older vehicles have air conditioner hoses rather than the aluminum tubes used today.
