I was comparing what my coolant reservoir looks like with online pics.  Starting to think its missing something, like the level sensor (red needle telling you to put in more or that its too full, etc).

Can anyone with the know how, chime in?  Thank you.cool.thumb.jpg.bc426dd142e77a778d96c1e364766feb.jpg

yes, thats why noticed I do not appear to have the level indicator needle.  Further search shows there is a part called level sensor which appears to be a separate needle like part that I assume goes into the tank itself.  Thats why I started to wonder if its missing.

Got it sorted out.

When I got the car from dealer, it was filled as shown above.  So I assumed it is supposed to be like this.

When I read the manual, noticed I could not see the needle.  It was there, but submerged under coolant, so I could not see.

Digging into it, ended up siphoning some out (about 2 glasses worth), and saw the needle, which started moving towards center.

It is all good now.  Thanks for help.
