Requirements for Engine Cooling System Filling, Deaeration, and Drawdown Tests
- Ground Vehicle Standard
Changed document type to Recommended Practice.
Reformatting the different heading levels to clearly identify the two main engine cooling systems this recommended practice is focused on: (1) Heavy-duty vehicles, industrial and (2) Automotive applications.
Added Reference SAE specifications in Section 2.
Defined in Figures 1 and 2 the different identification levels in a surge tank (pressurized) and reservoir tank (un-pressurized).
Minor changes have been made to clarify various parts of the document.

The Cooling Systems Standards Committee is part of the Vehicle Engineering Systems Group and reports to the Motor Vehicle Council. The Committee is responsible for developing and maintaining SAE Standards, Recommended Practices, and Information Reports related to engine cooling systems and components for automobiles and light trucks, heavy duty on-and off-highway vehicles and industrial equipment. All standards reflect the latest technology and industry practice through advisement, consultation and cooperation with industry, government, educational institutions, the public, other standardizing bodies, and other SAE committees and members. Participants in the SAE Cooling Systems Standards Committee include OEMs, suppliers, consulting firms, government, and other interested parties, who assist the SAE Engineering Activity Board through the preparation and presentation of technical papers at national meetings and specialty conferences.
