    Check Coolant Level Warning

    Hi all,

    Hope someone can help with this. I am getting the Check Coolant Level Warning whenever I start my engine- this has been happening for around 2 weeks. The needle on the dashboard has remained in the middle.

    I am trying to top up my coolant and everything says that the the foating red stick should be level with the top of the coolant bottle- thats fine. But what I don't understand is whether it should be level- before starting the engine or after starting the engine.

    The reason I ask this is because when I don't start the engine the stick is above the top of the bottle. After I start the engine that stick seems to sink downwards (below the top of the bottle)- Do I still need to top it up?

    Thanks,
    Ismail

    You need to check it when the engine is cold.
