Lotus Elise Coolant Level. Is it normal?

Recommended Posts


I have noticed the coolant level looks very low, but I don't remember if it was the same before. My car is around 1000 km, lotus elise 250. Is the level of coolant normal? If not how much should I add? And what's the spec of the coolant? Anything red/orange is acceptable? Thanks.

Hi, the same "mystery" was with my car. After cca 500km I have noticed the same... It goes down and up with depending of temperature and pressure. I have tried to put in a little bit more water and it seems the system flushed (?) it out after drive (or part of it). I think this is the low "normal" wiew. Watch it with cold and hot car, after normal drive, after hard drive and you will se the differences. Lotus recommended coolant is Petronas Paraflu Up diluted 1:1. The same wiew I have seen on another Lotus with the same engine , so I really think, that is ok...
