A coolant additive to your new 2017? Why? Use a turkey baster to remove what you can to get to the proper level.


I added Hy-Per Lube. It's only over full with engine at normal temperature


meh.. if it isn't going too high, I wouldn't worry about it. If it is near the cap at operating temp, you might pull some fluid. I'd probably pull the fluid with the car cool, not hot, js. How do you like your 2017 model?

I love her. She a nice car runs great the odd thing is that the dealership put 40PSI not the 32 Subaru asks for can't wait to try her in the snow . Only 1,801 miles.


You probably have tires rated for 44psi or so? It's fine.. plus, you lose a little pressure depending on where you live with the cooler weather coming.


Will there are sport all season


yeah, that could be 35, 44, 51, etc. It's always tire specific, just check your tires ;)




Sidewall.. It's small but it's on there. It'll be in parentheses iirc and will give max psi
