The Houston area experiences extreme temperatures. We are in a severe duty area which means manufacturers realize severe heat requires crucial maintenance. It is very important to make sure that your cars coolant level is correct. Checking the coolant level is very easy and it might make a big difference on your engines health and proper functioning since failures in this area could seriously damage it.
Your Cars Age
It’s important to consider that new cars have many different types of coolants in them and it is important that you use the proper coolant for it or otherwise, if you use a regular coolant formulation it might damage the engine.
Wait To Check It!
Before you start checking the coolant level, always remember to wait until the car is cold. You should never examine the coolant system before making sure the system is cold or you could be seriously hurt due to the high temperatures which car fluids can reach. The cooling system should not contain any debris of any kind, and in case it does you should remove them until it is completely clean since very usually engines overheat due to the presence of debris.
Take a look the coolant level into it according to the mark it has. If the coolant level is between the mark which says full and the one saying low then it is correct, if it doesn’t reach the low mark then you should add more until it reaches the proper level.
