Where is the fill line on the coolant reservoir?
Open the hood and locate the engine coolant reservoir. It is often a translucent white color, and has hose(s) connecting it to the radiator. The reservoir has a fill range marked on the side. If your engine is cold, the coolant level should be up to the cold fill line.
How full should overflow tank be?
Your coolant reservoir tank should be at least 30% full. Most reservoir tank has min and max mark drawn on the side of the container. The most common cause of a coolant leak is a bad radiator cap, bad radiator fans, and loose radiator hose clamps. Check your coolant and inspect if there are any leaks.
How do I check the coolant level in my Jeep Liberty?
Touch the pressure cap and/or filler neck of the radiator (that the pressure cap mounts on). If the pressure cap is as hot as the other hoses, then the system is full. If the pressure cap is significantly cooler than the hoses or other parts of the cooling system, then you’re likely low on coolant.
Should radiator be filled to top?

Why is the radiator coolant filling up the reservoir?
Coolant, or antifreeze, is essential to regulating the temperature of your vehicle. It’s also extremely toxic and designed to stay inside a closed system. If you’re seeing an overflow, it could be due to a radiator cap, thermostat, water pump, or radiator malfunction.
