- 2019 CX-5 Reserve
Do you top it off through the dipstick hole? I hate the thought of driving around with any of the fluids low...they provide a cooling function in addition to a lubricating one.Yeah, Mazda's factory service manual makes the ATF level check sounded vey easy, but it can't be done as described.
I've been thinking of getting one of those RF-to-Smartphone OBDII readers, anyway. Maybe this is a good reason to do so.
As an aside, because I've read a bunch of comments with a "blue coolant light" reference in them: My Reserve does not have a coolant low-temp light. In fact, the 2019 manual does not show a coolant low-temp light in any dash style...just an overheating warning light. The Instrument Cluster and Display (and Warning Lights) are discussed starting at Page 4-12 if you're curious.
I only throw that out there because no one else has said anything about there being a change in the new MY and someone might eventually ask where theirs is...or I'm overlooking it in my car (I've looked when it's cold)...or the bulb is not functioning...or you already know it are are referring to the light out of habit.
Thanks for the help!
