    Re: Coolant Type?

    I'll be doing my cooling system in the next few weeks. Water pump and belt, hoses and coolant flush. I plan to stay with DEX.
    What baffles me is there is no way to tell resevoir level without shining a flashlight in it, which at best, is an educated guess.
    Has anyone thought about or looked into an aftermarket float level gauge? BMW's use them and they are handy, pull the cap when cold and the level gauge pops up through the fill hole showing the level. I am going to look into what is availbale for this situation.

    Most of the surge tanks have a translucent lower half, which is right where the coolant level should be. I can't recall any all black ones, but if you have one, just make a simple dipstick out of a piece of wooden dowel rod. Simple, cheap and easy.
