Now I changed both hoses, they doesn't expand as the old one but they got very hard after only 5 minutes and a lot of pressuare when I lift the radiator-cap. As I said, the temp is normal, could it be a broken headgasket? There's no exhaust-smell in radiator. Or should the hoses be very hard by pressuare after only 5 minutes? Maybe I worry unnecessarily... Opinions please.
As the coolant warms up, it expands slightly and builds pressure in the cooling system. The radiator cap is designed to hold back 15psi of pressure. This pressure increases the boiling point of the coolant and helps to prevent steam pockets forming in the cooling system around the combustion chambers and exhaust ports.
When the system presurizes, it forces a small amount of water (or air, if there is any in the system) out past the radiator cap and into the coolant reserve tank. When the system cools, that bit is drawn back in. In this way, the coolant system automatically purges air bubbles in the system over time. You still want to make sure the radiator is full the first few times after doing cooling system service like replacing the hoses, but once the radiator stays right about full, there is no more need to remove the cap. Just keep the coolant reserve at the appropriate full lines and you will know the radiator is full.
Also, DO NOT open the radiator while it is pressurized! Once your radiator is full, doing this will make it spray out scalding hot water and you can be badly burned! If you have one of the radiator caps with the lever to release pressure you can carefully use that to release pressure first, or hold a thick rag over the cap and *slowly* open it.
Be extremely careful though - I have seen the burns that this can cause and it's not pretty. This was even on a guy who had been working on cars for a long time and thought he was being careful.
hmmm, just one year before the closed cooling system was put in. Do you have space for a coolant jug over in the space behind the drivers side headlights? That's where my '70 puts it, you might be able to add one off a later model Caddy if you come across one.
Actually, any container of appropriate size that will not melt with >200*F water in it will work. Something about 2L in volume, and just run that rubber hose from the radiator into it. Make the hose long enough that it comes nearly to the bottom of the container, and you're set.
A little Swedish.
Stilig bil du har fått till.
En tanke bara - Är det rätt kylarlock du har till ditt system, för jag kan tänka mig att du borde ha ett annorlunda lock än ett till ett senare system med ett högre systemtryck.
Jag hoppas det inte är något allvarligt fel, eller helst inget fel alls, så här i bästa körsäsongen.
A little English. I only asked if he had the right radiator cap.
