    Thumbs down Add coolant already???

    I bought my 04 early January this year...and I just checked out the coolant and...it's already right between the full and empty/low line in the reserve tank.!!! So I went to the PepBoys and bought some green coolant. I was wondering if you can help me...
    - where should I pour the coolant?...
    1. into the reservior next to the turbo or;
    2. into white plastic reservior with the level indicator?
    **the manual says into the one next to the turbo, but will pouring it in there make the white plastic reservior indicator rise???
    - should I mix any water with the coolant before pouring it in? If so..how much should I do. I live in Cali...so the weather is not as extreme as some other spots.

    - what brand of coolant do you guys use?

    Thanks so much for your advice!

    Between the low and high is where it's supposed to be. How hot was the car when you looked?

    I guess I don't need to fill up now, but when I do...which reservior should I fill from?...the one next to the turbo or the plastic reservior?

    The temperature is normal...always at the same spot ever since I got the car..the thing is...i'm going on vacation and letting my bro drive my car...just wanna make sure everything is running great before I go. Thanks!
