    Default How do you use one of these antifreeze testers?

    Not really an engine problem, but rather than clog up the beneral forum as it's not urgent, does anyone know how to use one of these http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...MEWN:IT&ih=011

    I had one of them years ago, its what I termed a "Dip and Sip". You squeeze the rubber top, insert into the coolent expansion tank, making sure the point is submerged into the coolent, release the squeeze effort on the rubber top and this will suck out some coolent into the container, withdraw and look at the indicator or balls (as my one had). The number of balls that floated to the top gave the concentration of coolent when compared against the provided (with device) chart

    I didn't have a chart with mine although it does have markings on the glass thing inside the main tube. The problem is that it blocks the pointy bit when I dip it into the header tank.
