How do I check the coolant level?

The coolant level can be easily checked. All you need to do is open the hood, and find the coolant reservoir. The reservoir has a Low line, and a Full line. You should be able to easily see where the coolant level sits between those lines. If it is close to the Low line, add more coolant.
