WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J., Jan. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Coates International, Ltd. (OTCBB: COTE) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that after a number of weeks of analysis, management has determined that it has solved the problem of cracks appearing in some of the lower heads of the 14 liter CSRV (Coates Spherical Rotary Valve) Industrial engine.
