if there is coolant already in the lines, block and radiator then you can safely top-up, but if you are replacing fluid, say after a leak then you should mix it 50/50 with water. Good luck Badgirl.

Antifreeze should be a 50/50 mix with water. If you bought pure coolant, mix with water. If you bought premix (already 50/50) pour in straight.

Your engine should be cold ( to be on the safe side) when adding antifreeze/coolant. i let the car sit overnight and then add it.

No , it's best to add coolant when the engine is cold

My engine coolant is a 50 / 50 mix of antifreeze and distilled water so adding water will just dilute the mixture more and weaken the antifreeze so the coolant mixture will freeze at a warmer temperature and it will reduce the corrosion protection if there is not at least 40 % antifreeze

Drain and flush the system. Pour in one gallon of pure antifreeze, and then top it off with distilled water. This will provide protection to around -25 Degrees F. If adding fluid to an engine with low coolant, look for the stem sticking up in the inside of the coolant overflow reservoir and add enough 50/50 mix to reach the top of the stem.
