i have an 01 1.8t and noticed a red flashing coolant light i checked my coolant and it is low lower then the hash marks on the reservoir. my question is should i put distilled water into the tank to bring it to the correct level or wait and purchase G12(pink) which it has in it now?

I would go with the G12, but how low is it?

You should also find out where you are loosing water, it doesn't just evaporate. Don't make the expensive mistake that I did.......
Your in Albany, NY. Get the correct coolant, mix it 50/50 and then add to the mark. I'm in the same neck of the woods, and water in our temps? I would not recommend it.
