Great! Thanks!

Ok. The way the cooling system is set-up on this vehicle, coolant is added to the coolant reservoir, and the system will take when it needs as it needs it. The reservoir is located under the hood, on the passenger's side fender (click here for an image location view: ). On the side of the reservoir will be a marking letting you know where "full" is. Fill it to this line and the system will distribute it as needed. If the level is low, and then is low again after filling, this is the sign of a leak. The system will need to be pressure tested in order to find the source of the leak.
