Hose clamps, also known as a torro clamp, are used to seal the rubber hoses that connect to the engine of your car. They’re affordable and easy to use, but they are prone to leaking. This video shows a solution you can use to prevent leaks in your vehicle.
If you spot leaks in your coolant, oil, power steering, or transmission fluid, it may be due to a loose torro clamp. These clamps need to be screwed back into place in order to stop the leak, but the screws will become loose again. The heat released by your engine will cause the screws to come undone over and over again.
You need to make sure that you have the right type of clamp on all the hoses in your vehicle. You need a constant tension clamp instead of one that screws together. This allows for the clamp to adjust to the heat emitted by the engine and remain tight. Installing the constant tension clamps is easy and they can handle the expanding and contracting of the hoses.
