Question type: Maintenance & Repair

get about 20 miles it starts rising
above 210 I have dual fans ones the
manual and the other is electric and
both work perfectly. My question is
that there's a brass valve looking

sure what it's for. And people have
also told me to poke a small hole int
the top of the fill tank cap. Can any
one help. Lol
