Coolant filter add on

Anyone add a pressure gauge to your coolant filter. Mine only reads about a quarter pound of pressure with a new Degas cap. Just curious about this

Try the old cap again

Or if you hear psi bleed off when you open the cap i would be willing to bet .25 psi on the guage is not accurate

Your truck is the tester.
If you drive it and go from cold to operating temps you should see more than 1/4 psi

If not you risk boil over at higher temps. Or your guage is wrong or you have a bad cAp , system leak

Does over heat or boil the coolant. But the gauge should read pressure correct ?

You should be seeing anything from 7-12 psi on the coolant pressure. Something is bad, either gauge or the cooling system leaking, or the cap is shot.

I use a liquid filled vibration proof 2-1/2" 15 PSI model.

Buddy something is a-miss here.

Change your coolant tank's cap FIRST.
Then pull that gauge out and look at the fine hole the water goes into. Make sure its not plugged up with debris. May need a needle to clear it out if plugged.

Then see what pressure you see when up to temps.

Thanks for all the info guys. BTW I am on a US submarine where all we do is study things like the affects of water under pressure except will deal with pressure of a couple thousand pounds and hundreds of degrees.
