How high should you fill the resevoir to? Also is it ok to us Prestone coolant from Checkers?
Lost some coolant when I installed my green top coolant sensor. Forgot to tighten the cap after I released the pressure.

Re: Coolant level (Fantomasz)

The manual says you can only use G12 is that really an issue? Or can you mix other brands like Preston?

NO!
G12 only, the other stuff will destroy the cooling system.

How little did you put? You might have to get it flushed. I did the same thing. $99 at the dealer.

Re: Coolant level (NoDubJustYet)

I only drove it for 2.5 miles and only put a quarter of a resevior of the coolant with the G12. Getting flushed right now.
