When coolant (or any liquid) heats up, it expands.. Coolant Reservoirs, Overflow tanks and a surge tanks all do the same thing. They allow for extra room, to store coolant as it heats up.
Coolant reservoirs are typically made of a strong plastic and may or may not have a pressurized cap. This depends on the specific make and model of the vehicle.
Typically, the coolant reservoir will last for many years and will only need to be replaced when they are damaged. If you need to replace one you typically see:
- Coolant leaking
- Coolant leaking when engine is hot
- Coolant Boiling
How much will it cost?
The typical cost for the testing and replacement is between $80-$436 for parts and labor.
