    Default Coolant bottle connections

    Hello all,

    Can anyone please enlighten me if on the coolant tank there should be a pipe connected on the back at the top?

    Seems a bit strange to have an open port at the back with no connection?

    Matt

    That's the pressure overflow. The cap covers it unless the pressure gets too high in which case the insides of the cap get pushed up to release the pressure.
