Coolant Recovery Reservoir Replacement Service

What is the Coolant Recovery Reservoir all about?

The coolant recovery reservoir collects pressurized coolant from the engine cooling system while the engine is running and provides an easy and accurate way to determine coolant levels.

The coolant recovery reservoir is a container that is connected to the engine cooling system via a small hose that allows extra coolant a place to flow when the cooling system is pressurized. When the vehicle cools off some of the coolant in the reservoir flows back into the cooling system. Most are made of clear plastic for viewing of the coolant level and quality of the coolant itself.

Many are marked for safe coolant levels when the engine is hot or cold so that a licensed mechanic can inspect when diagnosing a vehicle. Some newer vehicles are equipped with a coolant level sensor to alert the driver to low coolant levels.

The coolant recovery reservoir also provides a place to top off the cooling system and refill with fresh coolant when performing a cooling system flush. Our licensed mechanics should perform these procedures because every vehicle requires different attention when flushing, refilling, or bleeding the cooling system.

Keep in mind:

  • A cracked or leaking coolant recovery reservoir can lead to engine overheating and electrical problems.
  • Low coolant level due to a faulty reservoir can cause severe internal engine damage, and the escaping coolant or steam can damage electrical components or other accessories.

How it's done:

  • The coolant is drained
  • The old coolant recovery reservoir is removed
  • The new coolant recovery reservoir is installed
  • The coolant is refilled and purged of air
  • The vehicle coolant recovery reservoir is checked for proper operation

Our recommendation:

If you suspect that your coolant recovery reservoir needs repair, have one of our licensed mechanics inspect the part. There are several components that could cause similar symptoms, and one of our expert mechanics will look over everything and give you a proper diagnosis.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Coolant Recovery Reservoir?

  • Steam is escaping from under the hood, wheel well, or front fender area
  • Temperature gauge is reaching the “H” level or red area
  • Low/check coolant warning light is on
  • Visible leak or puddle under vehicle
  • A sweet smell when the engine is running or just shut off

How important is this service?

A faulty coolant recovery reservoir can lead to engine damage and other serious problems with a vehicle’s charging system and electrical accessories. Moreover, having to add coolant to a vehicle with a leaky reservoir can get costly over time.

Stellar Service! Ben Smith in Houston, Tx. was exactly what I prayed for! Being a female with no experience at all on cars- I was indeed leery. However, the moment this guy pulled up and asked questions about the car and started checking my car from the front to the rear I felt at peace. As he dove into my issue on my VW CC- I felt even better. I had read his reviews and had asked specifically for him due to his ratings and let me tell...you every single word the Customers before me mentioned about him; was indeed true and much more! His credentials ARE AMAZING! NEVER MIND THE FACT THAT THIS GUY SERVED OUR COUNTRY! HE IS ALSO A MARINE! I FELT LIKE I RECIEVED A GOLD STAR FOR HAVING CHOOSEN HIM. I AM INDEED A LIFER. "YOUR MECHANIC", HAS BEEN OFFICIALLY ADDED TO MY CALENDAR AND LOCKED IN MY PHONE (SPEED DIAL OF COURSE). OH AND DID I MENTION THE PRICING WAS BETTER THAN MOST QUOTES I HAVE RECEIVED! THANKS FOR YOUR AMAZING SERVICE BEN! YOUR COMPANY HAS A CERTIFIED DIAMOND! SIGNED A LIFER Ms. Proctor

Jonathan was very polite, professional, and took care of the problems. He addressed all the concerns I had and answered any questions. He gave me answers concerning other problem we have with a second vehicle that was a great insight from a knowledgeable mechanic. Thank you for helping and coming today it was a pleasure meeting you and we would recommend you for future services as well.
