Hello again, yet another question!
Drove the usual 70 mile journey to work today without any problems this morning, got in the car to go home at the end of the day though and when I started the engine I got a little warning saying "Coolant". Then it said "turn the engine off and check the coolant level", so I did. Turns out the coolant was below the minimum marker, but still had some in it (ie it wasnt completely dry) so I found the nearest garage and bought some more.
Two questions here:
1. I put too much coolant in when I was refilling it, does this really matter? Its nowhere near overflowing but it is quite a bit above the Max marker.
2. Do I need to be concerned that it ran out in the first place? It had a service and MOT less than 2 weeks ago so I would assume that it will have had the correct amount of coolant in it then (unless they just did a sh*t job of checking it).
I had a look at the level when I got home (nearly 3 hours later thanks to a huge traffic jam! Good job I did top it up and not just leave it until I got home) and it seemed to be at the same level as when I refilled it so it cant be leaking in a really big way or anything. I'm guessing the advice will be to just keep an eye on it every day over the next couple of weeks?
