JerryB Posted February 23, 2010 Share Posted February 23, 2010 when I figure out how to post it I'll post a picture of my "coolant pushing" cure. After putting a new waterpump and housing on mine it started pushing coolant again. I had the cylinders and heads checked and they found no problems so we didn't know what else to do.I went to the boneyard and got a 2.5 gallon steel coolant reservoir from an older Western Star because it is round and looked easy to modify the reservoir brackets on my truck to fit it. When I installed it I only filled it halfway with coolant to leave room for whatever and put a new 7 pounds pressure cap on.So far on 5500 miles or so it hasn't lost any coolant and never over pressures the 7 pounds radiator cap. I've been driving it like it belongs to my mother in law and I'm mad at her. damifino why but I think it's fixed. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
