    Default coolant for 306

    I have no idea about what coolants to use for my pug. Given we are going through a heat wave in melbourne at the moment (yup its above 20 deg), i thought i may top up on some coolant.

    A few q's .

    1)What coolant
    2)how much should i put
    3) should i fill it to the top of the canister?


    What other measures can i make if any to keep my car cooler during the summer?

    thanks
    love always

    Neo Synthetic "Keep Cool" Water Treatment.

    contains absolutely no anti-freeze, but can be mixed with. I can vouch for its cooling ability from my day at Mallala. Mixing instructions are on the tin.

    Askanka, I was told by the mechanic at ULR that the coolant level should be about a finger length from the top of the expansion tank. MIne has no marks on the outside, so he said it should be about that level. Either that or fill it right up and let the run-off hose take care of the rest. I'm just using top-up stuff from K-Mart for now.

    Far easier than the Jag I used to own.... Fill it up, run it, bleed it, fill it up, run it, bleed it, repeat ad-nauseum!

    The coolant is bled from a twist plug at the base of the passenger side of the radiator. It's a tough one to get out so use some locking plyers with cardboard to protect the plastic and get the best purchase you can on it. about 3/4 of a turn will bring it all the way out. Fill the expansion tank up to about an inch before it starts to taper toward the cap.
