I'm probably the newest guy to any car problems, but when I look on my car manual to find where my radiator is.I have no clue. I see the Coollant but I don't know where I would add for the radiator. In my old bronco the radiator was in clear view. But this contour is small and I am not used to this. Can you tell me where it is the radiator is located and if just adding water would be ok for now?

I am lost!

Car: 98 contour
Miles: 100k
Automatic
No sounds or smells
Filling the radiator.I am lost.
No idea on past history.
Do you
have the same problem?

You want to add a 50/50 mix of coolant OR half water half straight coolant. The radiator isn't accessible like your old one was.
