Hard oil hose..

My oil tank to engine-mounted oil cooler (S-hose) is hard. I've got an 86 with 56k miles.

Shall I replace it? I'm making a list for this winter.

Thank you,


I've also been told to protect my oil storage tank from rocks being thrown at it by my rear tire. Is this a real concern if my tank has the factory undercoating?

This hose is $20 and takes 5 min. to replace when you're changing your oil. When in doubt, swap it out.

Never heard anything about rocks hitting the rear tank. I know there's a shield for the Carrera front coolers though.
