  • -AFTER REPLACEMENT OF THE WATER PIPE, PUT THE COOLING SYSTEM UNDER VACUUM. IT WAS LOSING ABOUT 1 inHg OF VACUUM ABOUT EVERY 10 MINUTES WHICH MEANS THERE IS STILL A VERY SMALL LEAK SOMEWHERE. -INSPECTED THE ENTIRE COOLING SYSTEM AGAIN FOR ANY SIGNS OF OTHER LEAKS AND FOUND A SMALL AMOUNT OF DRIED COOLANT AROUND ONE OF THE HEATER CORE LINES AT THE PLASTIC QUICK DISCONNECT. -GRABBED ONTO THE HOSE TO VERIFY THAT THE QUICK CONNECT WAS SEATED COMPLETELY, AND WHILE PUSHING ON IT, THE NIPPLE COMING OFF THE TOP OF THE QUICK CONNECT FELL OFF (IT WASN'T EVEN WHERE I WAS HOLDING THE HOSE) *RECOMMEND REPLACING BOTH HEATER HOSES WITH COUPLERS
