RE: Kenworth Metal cooolant Tank
Is that an expansion/overflow tank? My pete has a metal tank with a little sight glass. It's a real PITA trying to monitor the level in the tank. All I know is it's either below the glass, above the glass or right within the small window of the glass. I wish I could replace it with a see through plastic tank so I can more easily monitor what is going on without any guess work. Just my 2 cents.

RE: Kenworth Metal cooolant Tank
Long ago before all this plastic came into existence, we had the metal coolant reservoir. Part of the driver's daily pretrip inspection, was to check coolant level by removing the cap and looking. Actually looking to see the coolant level, and add if necessary. lol. BTW, if driver doe's not do his pretrip, it actually has coolant sensor on bottom of reservoir.

RE: Kenworth Metal cooolant Tank
maybe use a better sight glass?

going all out and using a metal tank would warrant such an extra expense I would think.

RE: Kenworth Metal cooolant Tank
People seem to be all excited about these metal tanks but I don't get it at all, I've never had issues with any of my plastic ones ever. Maybe some guys have constant issues, I just don't seem too.

It's everything else under the hood that breaks for me!

I always wondered WHY they never installed that type of sight glass on those metal tanks. I hated crawling up there to check coolant levels, especially in the winter. That moronic little bubble glass was never readable, at least I could never see anything through it. Give me clear plastic.

RE: Kenworth Metal cooolant Tank
I agree. Much easier to see just what's going on inside that tank. Gas bubbles? Oil floating on top? Can't see that stuff through a little sight glass into a completely dark metal tank.
