Checking the car this morning, my coolant?? (pink liquid in a large reservoir)is sitting on the Min mark. What do i go out and buy here, is there a special type etc?
Thanks

gaz i usually use the pink stuff from halfords. you can also mix the new purple ford stuff though.

if you are gonna buy it from halfords, give me a shout and i will save you a couple of quid on trade if you like?

50%? of the coolant is water so it would do no harm but it would change its properties - temp range being the main one. best off buying the real juice.

unfortunately its £10.99 for 2 litres but you will get something off with trade. it could be a quid off it could be a fiver off, i honestly cant remember what i saved last time - saying that the trade discount does change from time to time and recently i have had some very good discounts

2 litres sounds like it would be plenty anyway. Would rather that than water as its getting nearer winter :(
Is it some sort of card you have?
