Hi, such an embarassing question to ask but do i put coolant in the resevoir to to right? or into the coolant filler cap area to the left? I don't have a manual so help would be much appreciated.

You can fill by the one on the left but there is an expansion tank to the far right that has a dip stick in it so you can check the level.

Not an embarassing question at all. i've seen 2 different mechanics scratch their heads at wondering where the coolant goes.

There is 3 filler caps..

one at the left near the inlet manifold.
one on the radiator.
and a plastic one on the expansion reservoir..

Take them all off, and fill the engine one to the top, or until the rad is full.
put the cap on the rad, and keep filling the engine..

when both are full, top up the expansion tank to the full mark on the dipstick..

run the engine for a minute or so and top up the engine if the level drops..

replace all the caps..
