View Full Version : Debris in Radiator

12-04-2013, 03:57 PM
Today, after changing my oil, I unwrapped a new anti-freeze tester, the floating ball thing, and dipped in the top of the radiator. Squeezed the bulb, pulled up water, took it out of radiator . . . the little plastic tube was gone!!!! Can anyone tell me the ramifications of having a 4" plastic tube in your radiator? Do I need to get the thing out? Any help would be

Try running engine with the cap off and have a pair of needle nose pliers ready in case it floats by, grab that sucker!!. I cant go far if radiator is top tank style(stock).

Your okay.
Just a bummer that made in CHINA crap makes you loose sleep at night...
I agree with 67 R/T...
Its winter here. And Knowing me? Id have that sucker out of there by spring one way or the other.

How about over fill the radiator, it might pop up out of the hole whilst running the car? But 67 R/T is right, its in the top tank so no way for it to go anywhere else..
