Keep an eye on your coolant. Check the coolant level when the engine is cold. If the level is low, add a 50/50 solution of coolant and water to maintain the necessary antifreeze capability. (NOTE: CHECK YOUR MANUEL FOR CORRECT COOLANT TYPE). It is recommended that a coolant flush be performed every other year to make sure the protection is clean and strong. During this time the condition of accessory drive belts and hoses are checked.
