Hello, I'm Jason.
I will do my best to answer your question quickly and accurately using the information you have provided.


You should definitely not put any sort of additive in your cooling system. You will need to check the coolant level when the engine is cold, and if it's slightly low, add nothing other than distilled water until you're able to bring the car to the dealer to diagnose the problem.
