Hi! I have a 2016 Prime, and the check engine light came on. Steady, not flashing. I plugged the OBD in and the only code is P0128. I ran the car while sitting in park with the OBD plugged in to see if it heated up and nope, looks fine. I want to check the coolant level, but I can't find the markings on the reservoir. It's the one that looks rather like a flying saucer. Can someone point me to where I should look, or should it be filled to the halfway point that looks like a seam? Thank you!! I want to take it in, but if it's low on coolant, I'd really rather not drive it that far without topping it up.

How do I fix that? And again, where are the markings for minimum and maximum on the 2016 reservoir?
Thanks for any info.
I may be mistaken, but if i remember correctly, the marking for the max fill is on the passenger side of the reservoir, fairly close to the top edge before it makes the sharp bend towards the cap. I don't believe it was easy to see, but it should be in that area.

Thank you so much!! I'll look in the morning.
