problem with the voyager cooling system.
i took the side cover where the sight glass is for the coolant overfill tank is and noticed in the bottom of the tank was a bunch of black particles floating around. i then said i need to find out what the hell that is so i flushed out my antifreeze and oh my god!! all kinds of black 1 inch long strips of paint was coming out. i noticed it was from the thermostat housing cover. the part that the radiator cap sets on. the inside of this frickin thing was peeling paint.WHAT THE FU%# WOULD YOU MAKE A DEVICE THAT HOLDS ANTIFREEZE, STRIP PAINT. SO, i flushed and flushed as much as i could out with distilled water. i got it so no more particles where coming out of the system, but that's not counting for all the nooks and crannies in that thing, especially the mechanical seal. just everyone make sure you dont have black particles floating around at the bottom of your reserve antifreeze tanks
