Coolant Reservoir Level


Recommended Posts

If the coolant overflow reservoir is below the FULL line, do you just add straight anti-freeze to bring it up to the full mark?

You can add either coolant or water as the amount that you would be adding would be so small as not not have a great effect on the ratio of coolant to water (ratios can vary anywhere between 50:50 and 70:30 coolant - if you live in a freezing environment, then go for the 70:30 coolant ratio). If the coolant is very red you are safe to just add water. If the colour is a light red / slightly pinkish, then add coolant.

Actually, your coolant looks quite red, so I'd just add water. Also, I don't like to mix different coolants when I don't know the original coolant formulation.
