I seem to have sprung a leak (the car, not me personally).

Customer Question

I seem to have sprung a leak (the car, not me personally). I've bought Radweld as a temporary measure but need to find out the engine coolant capacity so I know how much of it to put in. I drive a Ford Focus Ghia, 1.8, 2001 on X plate. Thanks.

Hi there Mike , good morning to you and sorry for the delayed response

My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to assist you today

Ok the coolant capacity is around 3.8 litres

What I advise my customers to do is add 2 litres of antifreeze

And then top up with water to the required max Mark (and recheck after running the vehicle to bleed the system

This gives antifreeze protection of -37•c
