Have a 2005 Accord; 6 cyl. version.
Over the years, I have added water and or anti-freeze to the white plastic jug whenever it has gone down a bit without ever really thinking about it. Have never, ever, cracked the metal cap on the radiator itself to do so.
Today, I picked up a jug of Prestone 50-50 pre-diluted anti freeze.
Looked at the rear instructions on the jug and was surprised to see that they say:
If you have an "Expansion Tank", add the mix into sit.
If you have a "Recovery Bottle," add the mix into the radiator pix shows via its metal cap).
The plastic jugs in their instruction-pix both looked pretty much the same.
Which do I have ? An expansion tank or a recovery bottle ?
I always thought that you should ALWAYS add ONLY into the plastic jug. Have I been doing sit wrong all these years ?
It's a bit confusing. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.
