Re: Yanmar 4JH-2E using coolant

Simple, cheap and effective way to check - put dishwashing soap in the coolant tank.

If you blow bubbles you have a leak in the exhanger.

Same thing works to make sure your impeller is working (if you have an under water exhaust) - soap the impeller - crank the engine and look for bubbles.

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
