coolant reservoir replacement... again
2000 flexfuel sohc v6
this will be the third reservoir I've had to install in this car... this one makes a gurgling noise at temp, looses coolant, and when i took it off to replace the water pump, i realized it looked like it was developing cracks everywhere. while they don't seem to transverse both surfaces, i think those cracks are to blame for the loss of coolant and gurgling noise.
the new one is 96 bucks at ford, and theres no VatoZone equivalent. ive been screwing with the coolant system on this car for years now, and im wondering if i did/am doing something wrong!
the second and current tank i put on the car was meant for the other color of anti-freeze (dont remember which one i had but it was for the other one), but ever since i got it about 4 years ago ive been running the yellow stuff thats good for both.
i dont understand why im having to replace the tank on a fairly regular basis! anyone with any thoughts on how to keep my new tank from meeting the same demise??
