Kia Soul (SK3) 2020-2020 Owners Manual / Maintenance / Engine coolant

The high-pressure cooling system has a reservoir filled with year-round antifreeze coolant. The reservoir is filled at the factory.

Check the antifreeze protection and coolant concentration level at least once a year, at the beginning of the winter season, and before traveling to a colder climate.

When the engine overheats from low engine coolant, suddenly adding engine coolant may cause cracks in the engine. To prevent damage, add engine coolant slowly in small quantities.

CAUTION

Do not drive with no engine coolant. It may cause water pump failure and engine seizure, etc.
