The coolant level shall be checked with cold engine and shall be within the MIN and MAX marks on the tank.

If the level is low, pour slowly a mixture of 50% distilled water and 50% PARA FLU UP of the FL Selenia Group through the filler neck until the level reaches MAX.

A 50-50 mixture of PARA FLU UP and distilled water gives freeze protection to 35C.

For particularly hard climate conditions, we recommend use of a 60% PARA FLU UP and 40% demineralized water mixture.

The engine cooling system uses protective antifreeze fluid PARA FLU UP. Use

The engine cooling system uses protective antifreeze fluid PARA FLU UP. Use the same fluid type as that already in the cooling system when topping up. PARA FLU UP fluid cannot be mixed with any other type of fluid. Should it happen, under no circumstances start the engine; contact a Fiat Dealership.
