How do you add coolant?
It’s important that your Accord has the right amount of coolant in it – if it’s low, you risk overheating the engine. If you’ve checked the level of coolant in your reservoir and it’s low, it can be topped off easily. Just follow these steps:
Locate the cap on top of the coolant reservoir.
Turn it counterclockwise and lift it clear (the rubber tube should say in the reservoir).
Top off the coolant with premixed 50/50 engine coolant.
Replace the reservoir cap.
If you do not have Honda brand coolant, use a brand that’s rated for aluminum engines. Avoid Dexcool (GM specific coolant).
