Test Procedures

Test antifreeze coolant before maintenance is performed. The test strips should be used by the date on the packaging. For best results:

  • -  Start with clean, dry hands and utensils.

  • -  Run test in a well-lit area, natural light if possible.

  • -  Collect coolant sample from the radiator or petcock. DO NOT collect from the coolant recovery or

    overflow system. Coolant must be between 60°F and 100°F when tested. Room temperature is

    preferred.

  • -  Remove one strip from one packet. DO NOT touch the pads on the end of the strip.

  • -  Dip strip in coolant sample for two seconds without motion. Remove, and shake strip briskly to

    remove excess liquid.

    1. After 40-seconds compare end-pad color to appropriate Freeze Point / Boiling Point color chart. If the coolantmixture is less than 40% or greater than 60% check your maintenance manual as service may be suggested. Perform next 2 steps within 30-seconds.

    2. Compare middle-pad color to Reserve Alkalinity color chart. If pad color is 6.6 or greater coolant is good. If pad color is less than 6.6 go to step 3.

    3. Compare pad color closest to strip handle to pH color chart. If pad color is below 6.5 or 11 or above, service is recommended.

  • -  Complete color matching within 15 seconds.

  • -  For best results follow test times carefully. Use a stopwatch or clock with a sweep second hand.

    Comparing the test strips to the color chart too soon or too late may result in incorrect readings and

    improper treatment and could result in liner pitting and engine damage.

  • -  All readings should be recorded on the vehicle maintenance record for future reference.
