Aftermarket radiator overflow bottle

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I have an aftermarket alu radiator and I'm a bit nervous about not having an overflow bottle on it... can anyone recommend a decent small alu/ stainless one so I can more easily monitor my coolant levels?

I wouldn't bother Robbie.

Just use a non-return rad cap, and check the coolant level before you drive it.

How often would you suggest it gets checked. I drive the car a pretty decent amount, ie. Twice a week on average and sometimes it's for running around so I dont always have the opportunity to check...

The fan ticks on fairly regularly in warmer weather and it's not on the highway... 

I guess I'm just not used to having to pop the bonnet every time I use it...

If it’s overheating, or using water then that’s an issue.  If it’s not doing either of these things, as Locky said, perhaps check it a couple of times to make sure it’s not losing water then you’d probably be right just to drive it without checking every day.
