Coolant Levels

Hey guys can I see pics of what coolant levels should be when hot and cold? Mine is looking kind of suspect.

Also, should coolant be mixed with water? Yea I know it's noob questions! I rather ask than blow my vehicle up

Pretty sure it says right on the tank. And coolant is a mix of water and the coolant. You can get dex cool in Pre mixed jugs at some stores and probably all dealers.

Yea I see the fill line, so the whole mix should reach that middle line right? I think I need to add some coolant, mine is pretty below line.

Ah yes please do, I'm sure a flush isn't necessary I don't think it's leaking either
