How do I check the coolant level?
Checking the coolant level in your vehicle is an important part of maintenance. It also can be done in just a few steps.
Make sure your vehicle has been turned off long enough that it is no longer hot.
Pop the hood, and locate the coolant reservoir.
Take off the coolant reservoir lid, and remove the coolant dipstick.
The coolant levels should be between the “min” and “max” locations on the dipstick. If there is too little coolant, top it up and check again the next day to verify there are no leaks.
