    Default coolant level 406

    At the risk of sounding totally ignorant, could someone tell me how to fill the coolant reservoir on my 1999 406SV D8?

    There doesn't appear to be any coolant window or dip stick...

    My question is, do you fill it to the top, or is there a marking somewhere, or even a sight glass that I haven't detected?

    I do note that I have coolant on the base of my radiator and it seems to be using about 500 ml a fortnight (but this could be that it's over-full after I keep topping it up?) Any ideas? The handbook is silent on how to fill it correctly.

    Also I seem to be getting some leakage from the cap of the ATF reservoir. Not too much but enough to lightly cover the cap and reservoir. The fluid smells unburnt and I haven't noticed the level to drop.

    Thanks in advance,

    Dave
