Checking your coolant level
It is very simple to check the coolant level in most vehicles. Usually there will be a separate reservoir in the engine bay which is normally white or semi-transparent and two marker lines indicating min and max, your coolant should be between these two markers to ensure optimum engine cooling. Some vehicles may be fitted with other types of indicator, refer to your owner manual if this is the case. ALWAYS ENSURE YOUR ENGINE IS COOL BEFORE LOOSENING OR REMOVING THE RESERVOIR CAP AS THE SYSTEM WILL BE PRESSURISED AND WILL BURN.
