Question Changing Hoses

Hi Guys and Gals,

I am reaching 100,000 miles on my baby. I took her in for basic service and to change out some of the pulleys because they were making a squeaking noise. When i got her back car sounded great, but one thing that didn't sounds good was what my Service tech told me. The service tech told me to think about changing all the hoses because some were getting soft and needed to be replaced. He gave me a rough estimate of about 1,000 dollars. i was he said it was because they would change all the hoses and some were not easily accessible. Anyone else come across this or done this type of service before?

Thanks for any replies.
Fonso

should be pretty basic unless there's still that short little hose under the intake like on the early 4.6 engines.

My 01 is almost to 100,000 and I have been thinking the same thing. I have not checked into the price but doing it yourself should not cost over $75 or so I would think. Lower hose might be a pain but not worth that much money. Time to change plugs too.

I'd focus on just replacing the primary radiator hoses, but there is one funky lower hose w/ a tee junction in it. Looks interesting to replace. As for the heater hoses, I'd leave those alone. The radiator hoses are the ones that take the constant heat from the motor, the other don't.

Maybe they quoted you a price for silicone hoses. They are way more expensive than the standard rubber ones.

Which brings up another question...are the silicone hoses really that much better than original, or do people buy them for the pretty color? I mean, do they handle higher pressure? Higher temps? Last longer? I really don't know.

Never seen any sales pointers on them. Bet a set of Gates basic ones are perfect for most setups.

Do heater hoses flow continuously?
