another stupid question for you is this.....as youve had the car for 10 years,,are you just topping up with water, or are you draining down the system, and adding coolant??.....
dont forget this tip when topping up a system refill****
i will drain my coolant tank and undo the odd hose to get a good drain off of coolant,,re-attach all the hoses and then fill up with a pretty strong coolant/water mix...dont forget that your engine block will retain around a 20% waterd down mix of coolant, so dont be tight when adding the new coolant to the mix,,youve still got the water in your engine block to conscider..
also...dont go over the MAX line as you will have problems when town driving due to expansion/pressure/ heat= overheating..
hope this helps????? and sorry for the spelling mistakes...
