Does it help to have a roll of duct tape in the trunk at all times.

I have a roll of duct tape in my trunk just in case I get a hole in the radiator hose. Does it actually help?

Scotty,

Thanks for what you do helping us save money on fixing cars. Just a quick question.

I watched your video on emergency items to have in the trunk at all times. I took your advice and put all of those things in my trunk.

My question is regarding the duct tape. Will it seal a hole in the radiator hose for a little but since it's a pressurized system.

Yes. But if the rubber looks and feels old replace it before it fails, use generic hoses.

duck tape is handy for alot of things...but why not check your hoses and replace them if needed?

My hose in good shape. I was just curious if the duct tape would seal a hole temporarily since it's very pressurized in there.

pobably burn the glue off with the heat...i wouldnt do it
