      Coolants low. Yes the dealer has G13 or whatever. My local parts store has “OEM” brand coolant for Porsche, Audi, and VW. About half the price. Is this stuff okay to use?

      Sorry for the link but this is it:

      Interesting. It claims to have VW TL774F but it also says it is ethylene glycol based and nowhere mentions G-11 / G-13. It might be fine but I'd opt for PENTOFROST on sale or the dealer option.

      Depending on how low it is, just add distilled water to it.

      Now that I realized there is a leak I am just going to use mostly distilled water till it’s fixed. Guess it’s not a good idea to do distilled water alone?

      By adding water over and over, it will eventually dilute the mixture to where it does not provide the corrosion protection and lubrication it needs.

      How often are you having to top it off and how much? Do you know where the leak is?
