How much antifreeze does a car need?
How do I know if I have enough antifreeze in my car? I live in Nebraska and want to make sure my car is ready for winter.
“Most car cooling systems can hold about 5 liters of antifreeze. Fortunately, most bottles also come in that size. So whether you just flushed your radiator or are simply looking to top off the liquid to get ready for winter, one bottle should do the trick.
You can tell if you have the appropriate amount of antifreeze by checking the reservoir and ensuring the fluid is filled up to the line on the tank.
Props to you for being proactive! Winterizing your car is a great way to keep your vehicle in top form year-round.
Since winters are particularly harsh in Nebraska, you may also want to consider putting together a car emergency kit. For ultimate peace of mind, you could also purchase a roadside assistance membership.
