You should add coolant with the engine off and cool, top off the radiator and fill the coolant reservoir to the cool or cold level. When the system is hot or running it will be pressurized and will be dangerous to open. You can however add coolant to the overflow reservoir at any time.
yes, should never add coolant to cold engine
You are probably low on coolant. You need coolant to heat the cabin and cool the engine. Add more coolant and take your vehicle to a shop to find/fix the leak.
depending on what year the car is it will either be to the radiator or to the resivour
Make sure the car engine is cooled off, preferably early in the day before the car has been started. The coolant tank is on the passenger side under the hood. Fill the tank to the line that says "full..cool" and you're done.
you need to add coolant to the coolant resevoir. coolant is antifreeze. if you dont have enough in your car you can overheat and damage your engine.
At the radiator or overflow tank. Do not add water, add coolant.
Maintaining the fluids in the cars is important. A person has to keep replacing the coolant fluid because the car is using it or because there is a leak.
After your car has completely warmed up the coolant level should be at the hot line. If it lower than that , wait until the car cools off and add coolant until it reaches the cold line. Never add the coolant directly to the radiator as you may over fill it.
Off and cooled down. Putting cold coolant into a hot block can crack it. And it can damage the radiator, as well as spitting the coolant back at you.

No,you should never add coolant to a running car.Or even a hot one for that matter.They are a closed system,you risk being burned badly byv doing so.
yes, because once the coolant started to steam it would seep out.
Coolant is added in the top of the radiator through the filler under the cap on some models. On the models without a radiator cap, the system is filled by adding coolant to the overflow bottle.
The overflow resavour is where you add coolant
You can add it to the coolant reservoir. It's located in the top left corner of your engine. Make sure your car is cool before you add in the antifreeze.
You add coolant to a C240 at the radiator overflow tank. This allows the radiator to suck in coolant as needed when hot.
Monitor your engine temperature and your coolant levels. Chances are you need to add more coolant to the car.
White smoke is coolant burning off. You have a coolant leak or the engine is overheating. Have this looked at by a professional ASAP, and stop driving the car.
The bigger your car, the more coolant you need to put in. The bigger your engine and car, the more coolant you need
I am not a car guy, but my low coolant light just came on in my Saturn Vue. I checked the owners manual and it said I should add anti-freeze/coolant. If you go to a car parts store (NAPA, Auto Zone, Pep Boys), they can tell you what type of coolant to add. If the problem repeats, you probabaly have a leak in your cooling system. Good Luck!
You should not mix colors or brands of coolant.
