ATS-V charge cooler burp & refill


Recommended Posts

My manifold air temps are creeping up so I have ordered a Tapout Tyning kit to help burp/refill the charge coolant for the intercooler.

The system uses a schraeder valve on a fitting ahead of the engine.

I also hope to do a vacuum refill but need the factory adapter or similar

GE-47716-30A adapter -- connects to the schraeder valve and converts to an air/vacuum quick-release fitting.

Here is the ATS-v with the front wheels up on jacks (both sides) and the vent/refill kit in place.  After the vent/refill, now MAT temps fall steadily when the throttle is open.

The fuse box is open to allow a switch to power the intercooler pump.  The funnel has fresh dexcool feeding into the fill connection.  A dowel is used to depress the schraeder valve on the fill connection while the pump is run for 3 second bursts to induce the air to bubble out of the system.

I have had success with the Tapout kit venting and refilling the charge cooler.  I still would like to do a vacuum refill.

I wanted to share my continuing science project to properly vacuum fill the charge cooler.  I have received the cooler bleeder series 5 connector, which will properly connect to the jiffy-tite quick-disconnect fill port on the ATS-V.  it converts that 1" connector to an 8AN then to a 1/2" NPT  female.  I assume the Cooler Bleeder then attaches to the 1/2" NPT and all is well; unfortunately I don't have a Cooler Bleeder, and they are not available / on back order.

I have a Mityvac coolant vacuum fill tool MV4535, but it has a different 1/4" quick disconnect than a standard air compressor connection.  The valve connection has a female quick-disconnect that would normally take a connector as on the extension hose below or on the MVA300 adapter, shown.  

I emailed mityvac to see if they had any advice.  My guess is I need to buy another $18 extension hose, Mityvac 823035,  then cannabalize it and put a 8AN to 1/2" hose barb on one end to effectively create an adapter from the Cooler Bleeder Type 5 adapter to the Mityvac system.

I have the GM GE part on order as well, but no telling when it may come along.  I can't tell very well what the connector on it is.  It is designed to be used with a $1K GM refill tool.
