    Hello Fourm


    i have been checking my levels and I think my water may be a bit low
    it was serviceed 11k ago and had and oil change around 5k ago.


    the marking on the manual is a different type to the acctual one.
    here are some pics

    One i have in my car, the level sits about half way above xxxed area above the min line ( please see bottle markings below)
    is this too low or just right ?

    Bottles look the same shape and capacity.
    So use the top bottle as the marker for where the max level should be.
    I'd say if the level is about 20mm above the central seem, then level is spot on.
    Any lower then the min line, then add the pink additive.

    Is the engine at ambient temperature when you check the levels ?

    Yeah you should be okay adding neat pink coolant additive. After all winter is on it's way.
