My car is running fine I'd just like to know why you guys feel the need to replace these parts.

Thanks
Klax, I'm learning too, but from my own experience I have a burnt oil smell after hard driving (but no obvious leaks),I have oil all the way up my dipstick when I pull it (so I suspect a clog), and I have 205k on the car and have been told these hoses go around this time, if not sooner. Also, I've been told cold weather cars suffer more and mine lived most of it's life in Michigan.
