2006 TRIBUTE 3.0L - COOLANT LEAK FROM DEGAS BOTTLE

APPLICABLE MODEL(S)/VINS
2006 Tribute 3.0L vehicles built between September 10, 2005 through October 15, 2005

DESCRIPTION
Some vehicles may exhibit a coolant leak from the degas bottle. Leaks may appear near a plastic weld seam and may be detected visually, however, it may be necessary to pressurize the cooling system.

Customers having this concern should have their vehicle repaired using the following repair procedure.

REPAIR PROCEDURE
1. Verify customer concern.

2. Replace degas bottle according to Workshop Manual (section 01-12 DEGAS BOTTLE).
WARNING:
Never remove the pressure relief cap under any condition while the engine is operating or when the cooling system is hot. Failure to follow these instructions can result in damage to the cooling system or engine and/or personal injury. To avoid having scalding hot coolant or steam blow out of the cooling system, use extreme care when removing the pressure relief cap from a hot degas bottle. Wait until the engine has cooled, then wrap a thick cloth around the pressure relief cap and turn it slowly one turn (counterclockwise). Step back while the pressure is released from the cooling system. When certain all the pressure has been released, (still with a cloth) turn and remove the pressure relief cap.

3. Verify repair.
