How to repair a broken radiator overflow tube
Plastic radiator tanks can become brittle and crack over time. One especially weak area is the nipple for the overflow tube that leads to the coolant recovery bottle or coolant reservoir. In the past, if the nipple cracked or broke off, you’d have to replace the entire radiator. Not anymore. Just purchase an AirSept Permatube™ kit #65605 to repair the broken radiator overflow tube.
The kit include a drill bit, stop and two replacement overflow tubes. Simply drill out the old tube, then insert a curved insert through the hole in the radiator neck. Screw on the replacement nipple and O-ring and tighten. Re-attach the overflow tube and you’re done.
Use it to block off leaking or damaged rear evaporator coils on SUVs and minivans. A block off kit is the perfect low cost solution to keep your front AC evaporator coil pumping out cold air after the rear unit has failed and where replacing the rear unit is cost prohibitive or simply impracticable given the age and condition of the vehicle.
Add this nifty filter to a high side metal line after a compressor failure to capture any left over metal shavings are particulate matter that’s still in the system after a complete flush.
If you own a full-size 2007-14 GM truck or SUV, you’ll find a cavity for a cabin air filter but no filter installed. That’s because the GM design required a bendable cabin air filter that nobody actually made; until now. AirSept recently introduced a bendable cabin air filter that’s a direct fit for the air filter cavity already built into your GM vehicle.
