About Coolant Pressure Tester
Halfway through Nevada and miles away from civilization, your vehicle starts to sputter and a thick layer of white smoke clouds your vision. While this is a nightmare scenario for anyone, you can avoid this situation with the help of a coolant pressure tester. Before you head out on any long road trip, it is a good idea to perform a once over on all of your vehicle's major areas to ensure a safe trip, and the radiator is one of those areas. Your radiator can experience both internal and external leaks, and a coolant pressure tester works by attaching the tester's adapter cap in place of the radiator cap. The tester checks the system's pressure, and any loss of pressure signifies a leak in the system. To perform the test, ensure that the engine is completely cool, as it is dangerous to remove a radiator cap when the engine is even slightly warm. Before you go on any long trips, check your coolant pressure with the help of a coolant pressure tester from the large selection available on eBay.
