June 29, 2007, Newsletter Issue #196: Antifreeze

Tip of the Week

Be sure to check for enough antifreeze/coolant in your radiator weekly. Some cars will have transparent reservoirs with level marking; fill to level marking with 60-40 solution of antifreeze and water. NEVER remove the pressure cap of radiator when engine is hot. You can buy a tool for checking antifreeze level at auto parts store, but rule-of-thumb is if radiator water is dark-greenish, you have good level of antifreeze.
