If you can inspect your car's coolant level yourself, make sure you do so on a frequent basis. It is simple and will take you only a few minutes. That’s right, you don't need a professional to check the coolant level, so there are no excuses. I have created a three-step guide for checking your car’s coolant level:

Step 1: Lift the hood of your automobile.

Step 2: Determine the location of the engine coolant reservoir. It is often in white or gray color, with a brilliantly colored crown.

Step 3 Examine your coolant reservoir for level marks. It will frequently contain Full and Low labels, as well as Max and Min labels. This is normally found on its side and indicates the current state of your coolant. If your coolant level is at the Max or Full range, your automobile has sufficient coolant.

One the other hand, if it indicates Min or Low, it's time to top out your reservoir with coolant. Be sure not to use more coolant than you need. It should reach the Max/Full point, and no higher than that. Using a funnel, you can easily replace your coolant.

Some people would rather avoid the hassle of having to open the car's hood or coolant reservoir. Instead, they simply look at the side marks.

Always check your owner's handbook to see what sort of coolant your vehicle requires. Again, you should double-check this before going to save yourself from any problems or concerns along the road.

It should also be noted that the water-coolant mixture should be 50/50. Because certain coolants are pre-mixed, it is particularly important to read its label and instructions.

Only in emergency situations should you add water to your car’s coolant system. Most automobile engines these days have metal cylinder heads that require the anti-corrosive property of antifreeze to preserve them.
