I got a new coolant tank and was wondering if it will cause a problem if there's air in the system (between tank and whatever that hooks to) when you change it out? Is there a proceedure to use when replacing it to keep all air out or get it out afterwards?
Thanks
Rick

It should burp out any air with use of the vehicle - into the recovery tank.

Thanks, I never saw a radiator cap on a tank like that and was afraid it might be like some radiators and the air not let you have enough coolant and over heat the engine.

squeeze the upper rad hose a few times after you've got it in place just to burp it, I can't remember if the Chally has a bleed screw for the cooling system, but if you don't drain it completely, you might not need to anyway

The system will purge the air as you operate the engine. Just be sure to get it to temp., recheck periodically and add only as necessary.

That is the tank I got and it's all your fault HIMI2NV. LOL If yours didn't look so good I would have saved $160. No really thanks for showing it to us. I can't wait to put it on.

I did the same thing. I siphoned the water in the tank it into an empty 2 liter Pepsi bottle and reused the fluid. I bet I could do the install in less than 10 minutes.

I am planning to conduct a coolant tank replacement this coming weekends. The same question runs to my mind about the tank. Do you now have any idea on what shall we do for this?
