How Do I Check My Vehicle’s Coolant Levels?
Coolant is stored in a plastic overflow bottle that’s connected to the radiator. It usually has a brightly colored cap. You’ll find low and high markings posted on the side of the plastic overflow bottle – the coolant level should be between the two marks. You should bring your vehicle into the Akins Ford service center if:
- Your engine coolant looks colorless, rusty or has floating debris.
- Your engine coolant has a sludgy, oily surface.
- The radiator hoses are leaking, cracked, bulgy or squishy.
Note: Do not open the cap until the engine has cooled completely, as hot coolant can spray out and cause severe burns. It's also important that you never add coolant to a hot engine to avoid the possibility of cracking your engine block.
