Coolant Level Question

Just opened the coolant cap and I could not see any coolant the car has not said to add any coolant so I was wondering where the min and max levels were as I couldnít see any?

If you're referring to the main coolant bottle on the right side of the engine bay (when facing the car) then to my knowledge there isn't a visible min max indication. If you shine a torch down the neck you should see the coolant at the bottom.

That's how mine is anyway.

I read somewhere that you have to use a tape measure and make sure it's within 4-5"?? from the top. Once you do that a couple times you will get to know what the level should look like without measuring. Don't quote me on the 4-5". I haven't verified the number in a while.

👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻 Correct. We have in cm but 18cm down on neck and tape should be coolant.
