Pressure Testing

PRESSURE TESTING IS AN IDEAL WAY OF FINDING THE SOURCE OF COOLANT LEAKS WITHIN YOUR COOLING SYSTEM. THE PROCESS INVOLVES SECURING A SPECIALISED PRESSURE TESTING TOOL IN PLACE OF YOUR CAR’S RADIATOR CAP. AIR IS THEN PUMPED INTO THE COOLING SYSTEM AND MEASURED FOR PRESSURE. IF THERE IS A LOSS OF PRESSURE, THERE’S A LEAK IN YOUR COOLING SYSTEM.

PRESSURE TESTING ALSO REVEALS THE LOCATION OF ANY LEAKS. WHEN AIR IS PUMPED INTO A COOLING SYSTEM, A SMALL AMOUNT OF COOLANT IS PUSHED THROUGH THE BREACHES, REVEALING THE LOCATION OF THE LEAKS.

COMMON AREAS IN WHICH LEAKS CAN OCCUR INCLUDE:

• WORN HOSES

• LEAKING RADIATOR

• LEAKING THERMOSTAT HOUSING

• LEAKING WATER PUMP

• LEAKING HEATER

• LEAKING HEAD GASKET OR VALLEY COVER GASKET
