Max coolant

I filled the coolant over the max line (about half an inch). Anything I have to worry about?

No, you will be fine. I would only be concerned if you filled it until it poured out the top. In that case, the pressure would just cause it to overflow when engine is hot. Even a inch over the line won't cause problems at all.

Thanks The weird thing is, is that I couldn't find the "max" line at first and figured if I'd fill it at least 3/4ths up I'd be fine. Decided while I was filling it, I really needed to find that line. So...I stopped and looked harder. Weird that it wasn't in an obvious spot. Anyway, I found it and that's when I realized it was too much. The "max" line was probably about half the container if not lower... so it's good. The cap needs to be well tightened? Or a little lose?

Also, kinda late to ask too but I spilled a little on the outside of it while I was pouring it in. I wiped it up as much as I could. I'm ok right? (Yeah...I didn't have a drainer thing on me. What's it called? I lost my brain today...)

lol.

You are thinking of a funnel. It's ok, it's early in the day.

Just put the cap on hand tight. No need to crank it down, you could cause damage to the cap or threads.

Thank you for the proper term and all the info. All is done and I feel comfortable now and can drive w/out worrying.
