Coolant Reservoir Tank


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

Just a quick question I have a Slight coolant leak, on my S-Type 07 plate, and Im thinking of replacing the coolant reservoir tank, is the replacement fairly easy? Any sort of advice would greatly appreciated.

I found it fairly easy, top hoses use spring type hose clamps, a pair of long nose pliers do the trick

the tricky one is the bottom hose, as its a quick release type, you push a tab in, then it slides off, only problem is theres not much space

Hi all been having the same problem on my 53 2.5 se

After the radiator went bang

Since then i have had to replace the top hose 

But still have a coant leak 

Then the other day i put some drain dye into the expansion tank hoping to locate the leak and suprise suprise there it is . The rubber seal inthe middle of the v that seals the radiator coolant return pipe (a cast aluminium part that is bolted on one side but held in the other by a rubber seal )  only thing i now i ll have to take the intake manifold off to remove  the ofending part and replace the seal 

But as the manifold will be off i will take the time to change the plugs as they are due soon 

Hope this info helps
