Coolant hose 06 Allure

When leak developed in top coolant hose, mobile truck mechanic only had straight hose, without vibration absorbtion bellows and I had him replace both top and bottom. Has anyone had experience with straight hose? Subsequent leak developed that was stopped by tightening a clamp. Is this something I can expect to recur if I don't refit with OEM hoses?

No first hand experience with straight hose vs OEM spec'd formed hose. My instincts would be to replace them with the OEM spec'd hose on your own schedule, vs if a problem did occur somewhere on the road... But, sure could be wrong. Suggest a call to a Cummins Coach Care shop, to ask their opinion.

Hose clamps can need a fine tune tightening after the first few heat/cool down cycles. If it is the proper claiming mechanism, after you reset it, I'd just monitor them as with all holes and clamps. Good chance the clamps will be good to go for quite sometime.

Best of luck to you,
Smitty
