Low coolant level sensor,

Buy a replacement reservoir! Why would anyone do that, if it’s only  
the sending float switch? Who needs a low level warning anyway, if  
the temp gauge works? I’m just trying to avoid disconnecting and  
removing the reservoir to fix the level sensor. BTDT many many years  
ago, but don’t remember the details (old fart’s disease).

The other recent problem was the over pressure relief valve in the  
cap. The valve assy is a snap together fit on the back of the valve  
plate which no longer holds its snap fit under pressure. A shim  
between the valve assy and the cap top prevents it from ever popping  
off again. See, no new cap needed!
