Inspection

Radiator Cap Testing

1.

Remove the radiator cap, wet its seal with engine coolant, and then install it on a pressure tester.

2.

Apply a pressure of 79.4 - 122.58 kPa (0.95 - 1.25 kgf/cm², 11.5 - 17.78 psi).

3.

Check for a drop in pressure.

4.

If the pressure drops, replace the cap.

Apply a pressure tester to the radiator and apply a pressure of 93.16 - 122.58 kPa (0.95 - 1.25 kgf/cm², 13.51 - 17.78 psi).

3.

Inspect for engine coolant leaks and a drop in pressure.

4.

Remove the tester and reinstall the radiator cap.

  

Check for engine oil in coolant and/or coolant in engine oil.
