Situated just in front of the brake fluid is the engines coolant, this is the biggest bottle under the hood, again just look to see if the level is between the minimum and maximum marks.

This coolant will expand when hot, so don’t be surprised if it is a little bit over the maximum markings. However if the level is below the minimum, then this could indicate a leak in your cooling system, which you should have checked out by a qualified mechanic.
