Coolant level

Is the coolant level (min/max lines) suppose to be measured while hot or cold?

The min level is the new max level. Always check cold.

^^^^ Yup. Cold, the raised plastic line is max cold. Some of the later years or updates have a sticker that shows the raised line is max and about a 1/2" below that is the low.

I always have mine a bit on the low side. I am almost at the low when its cold.
