    Default coolant top up

    my coolant warning light has popped up a couple of times the last few days, the coolant is about 10mm below the COLD level marker, would it be ok to top it up with water or do you guys think i would be better off getting the red VX coolant and topping up with that?

    I don,t think it would do any harm you will not be diluting it too much, but what I would do is next time you top it up is to just use neat antifreeze you will then put it back to the "correct" strength.

    What ed says. Mine did the same. Its only about £2.50 for the vx stuff and you dilute it 50/50. Make sure you get the vx stuff though and dont mix your antifreeze with another brand.
