Just spending a few hours on 'the Nuggett' In the manual it says to top up the coolant level with 50% water and 50% antifreeze. Do I need to in Spring? can I just add water? I've done that with my other cars but my other cars coolant was not Orange!! Any help woudl be appreciated!

Thanks

If it's orange stuff that you have make sure you get OAT (should be a ring round your bottle). I think the correct level is about ½" above the seam, but it's difficult to see the mark. Most people just use the seam as a guide. It;ll find it's own level anyway if you put a little too much in.

Funny you should mention this. I had my OAT coolant changed last week at a service and it's now blue instead of orange. Rob Bell also mentioned that he had recently bought some blue OAT. Whether you can mix them or not I really don't know, but I think that it's probably OK. Phone the dealer and ask them.
