Like a charm.

Hi All,

I followed Cheezit's instructions today.

The fuel cooler rad was 2 X 10mm - easy to access and the rad came off easily. Like Cheezit suggested, I laid it down on it's side between the bumper and the charge air cooler. It slid down there perfectly.

I popped off the lid on the degas chamber and immediately started hearing a glug, glug, glug sound. I'm assuming that was the air and liquid moving around/settling.

I took of the fuel cooler hose and the glugging continued. I back filled at this hose but it only took about 100ml. After about 1 minute, the glugging sound subsided and everything was quiet. I filled the degas chamber and it took more than I expected. I filled it near the top, so I could see it through the sight glass window. I suspect that is too much but I noticed an overflow tube so I figure everything will work itself out.

I buttoned everything back up, started the truck and volia!, everything sounds good. I ran the truck for about 15 minutes and still everything was perfectly quiet.

I am packing the truck in the next hour to leave for Boston (7hr drive) so I'm hoping everything is good. I suspect that it is.

THANKS CHEEZIT! The time you took to post instructions saved me a good deal of money and stress. I had to take this trip and was worried I would be stranded roadside if that pump when while traveling.

I hope this post help others in the future.

If it starts squealing again I'll update this thread.

THANKS!

D

I just came upon this thread while trying to diagnose the squeal described above. Advice was spot on. Thanks for the help. Just joined up today. Hope i can be of help to someone else in future. One thing i add though, mine was pretty empty so i had to actually fill the main tube a little at a time and blow it through to get all the air out .once bubbles stopped, i put it back together and all good. Might even be able to do it without taking off cooler. Just pour in a little at a time and blow into tube to force bubbles out. Again thanks for info
