Apply a pressure of 93.16 ~ 122.58 kPa (0.95 ~ 1.25 kgf/cm², 13.51 ~ 17.78 psi).
3.
Check for a drop in pressure.
4.
If the pressure drops, replace the cap.
Radiator Leakage Test
1.
Wait until engine is cool, then carefully remove the radiator cap and fill the radiator with engine coolant, then install a pressure tester on it.
2.
Apply a pressure of 93.16 ~ 122.58 kPa (0.95 ~ 1.25 kg/cm², 13.51 ~ 17.78 psi).

3.

Start engine and let it run until it warms up (until the radiator fan operates 3 or 4 times).
Turn off engine. Check the coolant level and add coolant if needed. This will allow trapped air to be removed from the cooling system.
Put the radiator cap on tightly, then run engine again and check for leaks.
