Hi,

I'm about to replace my old radiator that leaks with a new one.

I only have 4 litres of premix coolant until I can purchase more coolant in 2 weeks.

Will it be ok to refill as is and drive until I get more coolant?

Thanks
Peter

Fill it with water until you can get the coolant then you can put in the correct mixture. It wont hurt the car.
Its free to drain the water to replace with the coolant later.

@ 93EB,

Thanks, I just done what you suggested, Be about another 10 days before I got enough dollars to fork out for coolant.

Cheers

Yeah thats the best option :)
Otherwise the coolant will be too weak and not work as well.
