Re: [DML] Sight glass coolant tank

Nothing is difficult about  opening the expansion tank and peeking inside, but trying to drive yourself to the hospital with eyes full of boiling hot coolant IS difficult.

            Remember to advise that a mod like this requires a recovery style

radiator cap. The stock cap or equivalent won't work.

And a recovery system of course will not work if it has even the

slightest of leaks.

Since you chastised me for ease of access (Message #71461 -- not the

*ONLY* reason I converted BTW), can I ask: what is so difficult about

simply opening the expansion tank and peeking inside to ensure that

coolant is visible?
