Because engine coolant recovery tanks are typically made of plastic, having one crack on you is not uncommon, especially if you're a rigorous build-break-repeat Jeeper. Fortunately, 4WD carries a full line of coolant recovery tanks, also called radiator overflow tanks or coolant overflow tanks. If you've already cracked a few you may wish to go all in with a metal recovery tank from Be Cool, Mishimoto, Mr. Gasket or Flex-a-lite. Metals available include polished chrome, polished aluminum, natural aluminum or polished stainless steel. On 4WD you'll also find the yellow "warning" reservoir caps with the "Engine coolant only" text written on the top.
When you're tackling dunes, mountains and more, your engine is bound to heat up. Thanks to your coolant system, that's never an issue. The coolant fluids keep your engine cool and ready to move, regardless of the challenge ahead. However, that could all change if your engine coolant recovery tank happens to crack or otherwise fail to function properly. This is the piece that acts as your coolant reservoir, and it's more important to your overall Jeeping experience than you might think.
Choosing the Right Tank
Shopping for replacement coolant recovery tanks and parts is crucial to your Jeep's future health. Therefore, making the right choice is important. First and foremost, you'll want to ensure you're choosing a Jeep Wrangler coolant tank that's known to handle the heat without cracking. After all, having a weak coolant tank can cause serious damage to your engine, necessitating expensive repairs later on. You may also want to choose a tank that offers a level sensor.
Installing Your Tank
First and foremost, you need to make sure that your engine has been completely turned off long enough for your coolant to completely cool off. Removing your old tank without doing so is extremely dangerous and could cause serious burns. Otherwise, the process is simple. The modern universal coolant reservoir tank is designed to fit nearly any vehicle, so you typically don't need to worry about finding a special fit or using specialized tools during the installation process. Keep in mind that you'll need to replace your coolant after you've finished the project.
