Is there a specific brand and model you would recommend for the radiator upgrade? I tried looking at a few sites, but most were the single row OEM type. Thanks in advance

I wouldn't worry about the brand too much.

How do I go about adding more coolant? Is it a 50/50 mixture of coolant/water via the overflow tank? My X has been running hot at idle and is idling rough and I want to make sure I have enough coolant but dont want to crack open the radiator cap or do much of anything without knowing what I'm doing.

You want to do the following on a cold engine.

Remove the radiator cap.

Open the air relief screw and be careful not to loose the copper sealing washer.

Slowly add anti freeze to the radiator until coolant comes out of the air relief screw hole.

Once coolant comes from the hole stop adding coolant and replace the screw and sealing washer.

Top off the radiator and screw the cap back on.

Top off the overflow tank to the cold fill line.

Air relief screw location.

THANK YOU. Just straight antifreeze? Or antifreeze/distilled water half and half?

Just buy the 50/50 premix if you're topping it off
