More advice needed please !COOLANT!


Recommended Posts

Hi there just checked the coolant level beside my radiator (right hand side looking at engine) and its reading low. Now do i top it up with coolant (whats the best sort) or do i mix the coolant in with the rad water via the radiator cap.

 

Also what kinda fulid would you recommend for the steering jar on the left hand side of the engine looking at it?

 

Once again a thousand thank yous!!!

The coolant level in the bottle beside the near side wing is the expantion bottle, you can actually fill this till it overflows. Fill radiator if you think water level is low (dont forget to undo bleed screw on the left side of the rad (black plastic screw undo with large philips screwdriver)

 

Power steering Fluid to be used is Dextron III.

Top up the bottle - the rad will draw any in if needed.

 

Use 50% distilled/deionised water with a brand name coolant.
