The coolant pressure container consists of a pressure chamber and a overflow chamber. The coolant pressure container is mounted in the right side engine compartment.

NOTE: Coolant will normally be in the pressure chamber side of the coolant bottle. The overflow chamber should normally be empty

Operation

NON-PRESSURE SYSTEM

This system works in conjunction with the pressure cap to utilize thermal expansion and contraction of the coolant to keep the coolant free of trapped air. It provides a volume for expansion and contraction, provides a convenient and safe method for checking coolant level, and adjusting level at atmospheric pressure without removing the pressure cap. It also provides some reserve coolant to cover minor leaks and evaporation or boiling losses.

The pressure chamber keeps the coolant free of trapped air, provides a volume for expansion and contraction, and provides a convenient and safe method for checking and adjusting coolant level at atmospheric pressure. It also provides some reserve coolant to cover minor leaks, evaporation or boiling losses. The overflow chamber allows coolant recovery in case of an overheat.
