dude, 187 isnt hot at all. its actually running perfectly. and make sure you mix the coolat with water 50/50.

and you seriously dont know how to add coolant? Ps, make sure the ar has been sitting a while. thought id add that in there.

don't mix with the green... just add some water..you shouldn't be THAT low that u need to add dex-cool too..i added some water today and its a year and a half old now since i been driving it..added just a bit of water and ONLY TO THE LINE! don't go all the way to the top..just thought i'd add that since you didn't even know where too add im guessing you don't know how much to add either

maybe i should have worded my question more appropriatly, by asking how i only meant where under the hood, not literally HOW, i have owned 3 mustangs GT's i know how to add coolant, i mentioned i lost the manual cause i didnt know what brand either, explaining my second question. its pouring out right now and i have to drive a couple hundred miles so i wanted a quick reference of where to find where to pour.

whats sad is how bitchy people get on here so quick, need to get out more, if ur that shocked at somebody supposedly not knowing to add coolant to a car, watch the news, might have a heart attack

thanks for the help though

ahhh now it makes sense lol jk but well its kind of obvious...for any car..its either on the rad or has a tank in this case sorta both (i say sorta cause the bottle neck doesn't really count in my opinion) and the tank is the obvious choice for this car
