Step up the heat in your Jeep’s engine. Our Jeep Expansion Tanks will make sure that your cooling system gets the extra lift.

Jeep Expansion Tanks

Constant fuel combustion results to the heating up of vehicle engine. Because of this, the coolant present in the engine expands. This is especially true with the grueling condition of terrains that all-wheel drive vehicles, like the Jeep face. For this reason, Jeep Expansion Tanks are needed. Jeep’s expansion tank, also known as overflow tank, coolant reservoir, or overflow canister, is a chamber that supplies storage space for the coolant when it expands. Jeep Expansion Tanks are usually linked to the radiator’s overflow tube.

How do Jeep Expansion Tanks function? When a Jeep engine cools down, a vacuum is produced in the vehicle’s cooling system. This process, in turn, results to the sucking of coolant in the Jeep expansion tube back into the system. The coolant can move between the system and the expansion tank as it expands and contracts. This is because the cooling system that contains a Jeep expansion tube is a sealed system. As a result, no coolant is lost. A lack of a Jeep expansion tank may cause the coolant to flow out of the overflow tube and the cooling system, spilling onto streets or roads.

Another crucial job of Jeep Expansion Tanks is to get rid of air bubbles from the cooling systems of Cherokee, Compass, Commander, Liberty, and Wrangler. Coolant without air bubbles absorbs heat much faster, and thus, far more efficient than coolant with air bubbles.

The basic difference between a Jeep radiator and a Jeep expansion tank is that the former is always full, while the latter’s level of coolant constantly changes ?increases and decreases. Replacing Jeep Expansion Tanks can be done fairly simply. Installation involves mounting the expansion tank adjacent the radiator, connecting it to the overflow tube, and replacing the radiator cap. A few aftermarket part manufacturers, such as IK Multimedia and RC2, offer quality replacement Jeep Expansion Tanks. Maintaining the Jeep expansion tank is needed to make sure that the radiator holds up in demanding situations that may require temperature control.

With many car audio systems out there falling well short of tolerable a ideal solution is the addition of an amplifier. An amplifier can be used for one of two things. It can be used to power speakers the speakers that are in the cabin of the car or they can be used to power a sub-woofer in the boot of the car. Both uses provide a greater listening experience.

With many car audio systems out there falling well short of tolerable a ideal solution is the addition of an amplifier. An amplifier can be used for one of two things. It can be used to power speakers the speakers that are in the cabin of the car or they can be used to power a sub-woofer in the boot of the car. Both uses provide a greater listening experience.

Installing an amplifier is not as difficult as many think. It is a simple 2 hour task that can be performed by anyone with a little knowledge of the electrics of a car. The first thing to do would be to connect the wires to the back of the stereo. This involves taking the stereo out of the dash so you can access the RCA plugs at the back of the stereo. Depending on the amount of channels the amplifier has, usually 4 or 2, there will be 2 RCA plugs. You need to plug these RCA cables into the back of the stereo. The second wire to plug into the back of the stereo is the remote wire. This wire tells the amplifier to turn on and off with the stereo.

Once the plugs are in the back of the stereo you need to run the wires to the boot of the car. This is done through the cabin and can be concealed under plastic panels on the door trims on the floor of the car. Once the wire’s have been run you need to connect the other ends to the amplifier. This is a simple task as all sockets on the amplifier are labeled. Once the wires are in you simply need to wire up the speaker wires to your sub-woofer or your speakers and test the sound. If there is no sound you need to back track and see where you went wrong. If the sound is working you need to go ahead and secure the amplifier somewhere in the boot so it doesn’t move around while you’re driving.

Most car audio installers will charge you an arm and a leg to install an amplifier when it is quite simple and can be done by most people.
