The Coolant Reservoir

See that little black piece of plastic on top of the coolant reservoir? No, not the cap, the little thing with the wire plugged into it. It’s the coolant level sensor. That is scheduled to blow the connector off the top of the tank and leave the threads in place. I’d pick up a spare and leave it in the car. The plastic is likely fatigued and brittle. You can pick one up from Van Cafe, so get one.

    Yeah. No kidding. There’s a loud bang, a whole bunch of steam and a trail of water following you for a quarter mile. Get two – they’re small.
