    Collapsed Radiator Hoses

    Has anybody else noticed this when the engine is cold?

    The radiator hoses seem to deflate. Once the engine warms up they resume their normal shape.

    Is this an acceptable thing to happen?

    Don't forget to use your new car warranty!!! even if it is a faulty radiator cap. Watch your water temp until you fix the fault. cheers ZC
