Chevrolet Malibu Replacement Expansion Tank Information


A Chevrolet Malibu expansion tank, also known as an engine coolant recovery tank, is a critical part of this vehicle's engine cooling system, protecting the radiator from overheating or exploding by acting as a reservoir for excess radiator fluid. When the water/coolant mixture in a car's radiator heats up, it expands significantly. The expansion tank serves the function of storing the excess volume of radiator contents, thereby releasing the pressure to which the radiator would otherwise be exposed. Because an expansion tank is made from plastic, it is subjected to a great deal of wear from not only years of containing boiling liquids but also from the changing weather. In areas that experience severe temperature variations from summer to winter, they are even more prone to damage and the only viable solution to repairing a damaged Chevrolet Malibu expansion tank is to throw it out and install a quality replacement part. These tanks are inexpensive to buy and the operation of replacing one is quick and simple. Failure to replace a damaged or leaky expansion tank can cause potential problems to the engine's performance, not to mention leaving puddles of water wherever you park. You may also experience the distinctive smell of anti-freeze in your passenger compartment. This is an easy fix.

Chevrolet Malibu Expansion Tank

Keep your engine cool and your radiator running smoothly with a new high-quality expansion tank. This storage tank sits in your engine compartment waiting for the coolant to heat up. When coolant gets hot, it expands considerably and needs somewhere to go and that's when the expansion tank rises to the challenge. Its sole purpose is to provide a place where the expanded coolant can go to give the radiator relief from the extra pressure, and it does its job very well. When you use a superior-quality expansion tank in your cooling system, you help keep your radiator working efficiently.

PartsGeek.com knows how important your expansion tank is, which is why we only sell them from trusted brands like Dorman and Action Crash. When you back them with our 30-day return policy, it's easy to see that we take customer satisfaction very seriously.

How do I know if I need a new expansion tank?
