Mitsubishi Outlander: Engine coolant - Maintenance - Mitsubishi Outlander Owner's ManualMitsubishi Outlander: Engine coolant

To check the coolant level

A transparent coolant reserve tank (A) is located in the engine compartment.

A transparent coolant reserve tank (A) is located in the engine compartment. The coolant level in this tank should be kept between the “LOW” and “FULL” marks when measured while the engine is cold.

To add coolant

The cooling system is a closed system and normally the loss of coolant should be very slight. A noticeable drop in the coolant level could indicate leakage. If this occurs, we recommend you to have the system checked as soon as possible. If the level should drop below the “LOW” level on the reserve tank, open the lid and add coolant.

WARNING:
● Do not open the reserve tank cap (B) while the engine is hot. The coolant system is under pressure and any hot coolant escaping could cause severe burns.

Anti-freeze

The engine coolant contains an ethylene glycol anti-corrosion agent. The cylinder head and water pump housing are cast aluminium alloy, and periodic changing of the engine coolant is necessary to prevent corrosion of these parts. Use “BASF Glysantin Alu Protect Premium /G30” or equivalent. This coolant has excellent protection against corrosion and rust formation of all metals including aluminium and can avoid clogs in the radiator, heater, cylinder head, engine block, etc. Because of the necessity of this anti-corrosion agent, the coolant must not be replaced with plain water even in summer.
