Popular Questions Asked

What does a radiator overflow tank do?

The radiator overflow or radiator expansion tank in your vehicle's cooling system is designed to capture coolant as it is expelled from your cooling system as it heats up. With this system being pressurized it will also draw back this coolant back in from the tank to making the cooling system operate as a closed system.

Why do I need a radiator overflow or expansion tank?

The reason you need to replace these overflow tanks is a coolant leak through a cracked or damaged tank or a stained coolant tank, so you can't see the coolant level in the tank. This is bad as not knowing the correct level will force excess coolant out of the overflow onto the road, or not enough coolant will cause overheating, where the steam and gas pressure forces the remaining coolant out of the overflow and onto the road.

Pretty much all liquid-cooled engines use this system. Whether they are called a recovery tank, factory expansion tank or radiator overflow tanks, they all basically perform the same function. As cooling systems go through their heating and cooling cycles, the overflow tank typically allows the coolant level to rise and fall. Some have a pressurised radiator cap located on the tank, some have this cap on the radiator itself. Care must still be taken when hot, as the pressurised radiator cap can cause nasty burns from rapidly expanding coolant if not done correctly. Hot coolant fills are best avoided for this reason.

What are the signs my overflow or expansion tank is bad?

There is an array of different signs that indicate that you need a replacement overflow tank. Keep in mind some of these symptoms can occur if other cooling components are not working correctly. If in doubt, get in contact with your local Repco Authorised mechanic or get in contact with your local Repco store, who might be able to recommend a local mechanic.
