    okay, somehow my radiator overflow tank thingie is missing. im guessing someone jacked it (along with all my fuses) while it was sitting at Outlaw in dallas. fuckers.


    anyways, here are my questions:
    1. whats the official name for this?
    2. is it necessary?
    3. where could i find one?

    1) coolant overflow resivour
    2)yes as coolant heats up it overflows into the tank.
    3) id check on ebay or with someone parting out a car cause my new one was like 40 bucks my cost.

    just listen to what E said, get the scrap yard one, no need to spend extra money when you don't have to and when you really aren't going to benefit from it.

    werd, not only does the coolant overflow into the reservoir, but when the radiator needs more coolant, it gets sucked back in.
