I have a 93 Taurus wgn with a 3.8. Yesterday I had a touch of steam coming
from somewhere along the heater hose leading to the top of the water pump. I
checked but found nothing wet; no drips, no puddles. As my water level is
low, again, I decided to change the hoses. I found that the hose in question
is a rubber / steel /
rubber affair. Is that necessary for engine heat
protection, or can I sub out some all rubber hose instead? Thanks.
