Cooling system hoses replacement interval
What mileage do you guys usually replace the coolant hoses before they burst or leak? I have 151k miles.

If they don't feel too soft, too hard, look cracked, or have bulges, I don't change them. I have had hoses on my 1990 GMC minivan go over 300,000 miles with no issue. I just make sure I inspect them when I change my oil. Not just visually, but feel them, check for the above mentioned things.
