Coolant drain hose

Recommended Posts

Anyone with a 2008 or newer Mack or Volvo who does any work on their truck needs a coolant drain hose tool. It makes draining coolant super easy since there are no petcock drains on them anymore. Part number 9996049 , they are not available from Mack anymore and cost is $136. Type that part number into Amazon and $40. I bought mine through Mack many years ago. My buddy was needing one    and called Mack and found out the price and no availability. I got him the part number and Amazon to the rescue.

Since we are on the subject of cooling systems for these trucks and what comes out must go back in, this tool I find is a must have for any newer diesel. Any kind of air in these systems is detrimental to parts especially egr coolers. Doesn’t have to be snap on but i find this one works very well.

I quite like the coolant sucker tank its real expensive It was a recommended  essential tool at one point !   but a nice have if you do lots of cup jobs! Was a money maker tool for the Volvo turds at one point! Most of those essential tools  are 200 percent Mark up tools to the dealer real criminal ! Now you now why the part of the reason shop rates are so dam high a lot promoted by the Mother ship! Shop around guys!
