Self-servicing your engine coolant is a quick and easy process.
Find the coolant reservoir under the bonnet. This is labelled with maximum and minimum markers. When you top up your coolant, ensure that the liquid doesn?t exceed the maximum marker.
Engine Coolant or Antifreeze?
You can purchase engine coolant as a pre-mixed solution. Alternatively, you can buy antifreeze as a concentrate and mix it with distilled water. Aim for a 50/50 split.
