DIY: Adding Radiator Coolant to Honda BR-V

Ehm… some of us still don’t know how to add radiator coolant and the type of coolant used. So here it is…


  1. (Top Left) Fill the coolant only and only in the reservoir. Never fill the coolant directly to the radiator. The location of the reservoir is behind the radiator.
  2. (Top right) See that the coolant is near the low indicator. We need to fill the coolant until it reach the max indicator.
  3. (Bottom left)Open the cap, draw out the hose, try not to hang the hose end down or the existting coolant will flow out from the radiator. Snap the hose end on the intake manifold.
  4. Fill the coolant until it reach max indicator. Close the cap.

Honda state the coolant type both under the engine hood and in the user manual, use Honda All Season Anti Freeze Type 2. Currently the type is not available in all Honda Service Center. There’s only Type 1 available. Check the differences below.
