Can i just double check on something..can the coolant reservoir last until 10000km without having to top up coolant? Coz last week i did a basic pre-drive check and saw the coolant level drop to half and abit more and my next servicing is 5000Km. Just wondering after 5000km servicing, the next is every 10000km, will the coolant level drop to empty, therefore we need to top up ourself? Or we do not need to worry at all about topping up the coolant reservoir?
at the mean time, top up with distill water first if u got no time to go for a check...

Coolant levels in your spare reservior tank will drop abit when the engine is cold. When the radiator gets to working temperature, the coolant will heat up and spill into the spare tank, and back into the radiator when it's cool.

Not normal for a new car to have this problem. Do top it up to the required level asap and get it to CnC or ur favourite autoshop for a quick look. Something is causing the coolant to disappear(a leak, or some unsecured joints). U sure U read the coolant level correctly?

Try driving with no coolant, can test whether your engine light lights up or not haha.(Just kidding)

Eh bro..i mean..my coolant level drop to half level and a bit more until now...dat means after my 1000Km servicing which is like 3 mths ago till now..where my current mileage is 4200Km..it drops to half level..like dat is normal rite?

Hmm...the coolant reservoir is connected to the radiator cap right? So need not open up radiator cap to check water level rite? Just check from the reservoir tank will do?

ya, the correct place to check is the reservoir tank, the marking is there liao, u top up with distill water first, if it still drop, its time to go service centre check ... if it doesnt drop, means maybe it was half all the time ?

So, can i say that we actually need not top up anything after we have travelled 10000km as the coolant reservoir can last till then?

Technically yes, but best to check once awhile...but yours drop quite drastic..unless during yr 1k servicing the guy didn't top up water for u....try topping up the water to the full level and monitor it, if less than a week there's a significant drop, there may be leaks somewhere, better send in for a check....

Hi People

No bro gazoo, the water is from the condenser inside the car where there is a drain pipe to drain away the condensed water. Sometimes the drain pipe will
get stuck after certain mileage, hence the water will sips in to the interior of your car carpet.

SJR, i think quite fast. Within a week i think SJQ already have SJQ6XXX installing already. According to some info, Ex only got 100+ orders of kit. If one day they wack 6-7 ex shld be quite fast. I believe they shld be trying to let the ex bros and sis get the kit faster. They also biz ppl, no point got stock dun install for us.
