How much coolant does a car use?
How do I know if I have enough coolant in my car? I want to top off the coolant in my radiator after I flush it.
“The cooling system of a car usually needs about 5 liters of coolant (aka antifreeze). After you flush the radiator, you can add the coolant up to the fill line marked on the side of the reservoir.
Good on you for flushing your car radiator and staying on top of basic car maintenance. Doing so will keep your car running smoothly for the long haul. Paired with a great extended warranty and the right car insurance, you should have all your bases covered.
