Is there a way to make this plastic tank white again?

Chances are, it's dirty on the inside. Undo the feed to the radiator, and power wash the indside, and also the outside. This worked on mine. The plastic absorbs alot of oxidiation from the coolant over a 20 year period. Mine did not come up bright white, but it looks quite nice.

I find it amusing when I see posts on how to make 20 yr old plastic look new.Bottom line:replace it.I've seen NOS on E-Bay before.Though you could try soaking it in a bucket of bleach. My 2c.

I never tried this so use at your own risk. Try Westley Bleech White tire cleaner. It cleans a lot of things

Here is a NEW stock coolant tank for 86 and up.

There might be cheaper ones out there, just do a search.
