Pour approximately 1.7 quarts of coolant into the radiator, or fill until you can see coolant near the filler neck. Use one hand to stabilize the funnel to prevent spills.

Towards the end of refilling the cooling system, take short breaks in filling to allow air bubbles to work their way out of the system. You can turn the engine on for a couple seconds to help pull coolant through the system.

Remove the funnel and place the radiator cap back over the radiator filler hole. Press down on the cap and turn it clockwise until it is snug.

Insert and turn the radiator cap security screw clockwise until it is snug.

Dispose of your old coolant properly by taking it to a shop that accepts coolant or a dump that excepts hazardous waste.
