The add coolant message came on a couple of days ago. Where do I add the coolant? There is a metal piece under the cap of the reservoir.

Do you
have the same problem?

The bottle is the best palce to add coolant but be aware that you have a leak and it needs to be checked. You dont want to have it overheat and cause damage to the motor.

The best way to find it is to open your owners manual and it wil identify all the areas under the hood. If not, then go to a shop and have them point it out to you.
