Coolant levels

Post by Willst0ne on Thu Dec 12, 2013 11:43 am

So I topped up the coolant in the reserve tank - but this seems to have had no affect on the level of the coolant under the metal cap? Your help appriciated. W

Gggggreat thanks. I'll be trying that tomorrow. Last question then.....
As the coolant is a bit "milky" could anyone give me a good step by step to do a complete coolant change and flush?
Many thanks

That's because I topped it up with semi skimmed. Should I have used full fat? I've had a search for changing the coolant but all I've found are topping it up posts. Any pointers as to where the step by step guide is hiding?
