If i can see coolant i leave alone, totally agree, anyone who actually looks under the bonnet would not be refering you to the manual!

I work on... if i can see some, its not leaking that fast (if you check weekly), so job done, min/max markings on such a silly angle are a joke!

You'd be suprised, the manual is there to help you, sometimes its good to look at the book first.

After all, that's what its there for!

Indeed, but the manual compliments the forum.

If the answer is there great, if not ask us!
