If you are only adding coolant to maintain proper levels, and not due to a repair of a cooling system component, you should add the coolant to the Coolant Recovery Bottle.



  • Slowly fill coolant reserve/recovery bottle to at least the FULL HOT mark with the recommended coolant. It may be necessary to add additional coolant to the reserve/recovery bottle after three or four warm-up/cool down cycles to maintain coolant level between the FULL HOT and ADD marks. This is due to the removal of trapped air from the system.
