The mechanic has serviced the radiator and put coolant in it.

My question is :

Do I put water or coolant into the coolant reservoir
(ie. the plastic container) to keep the fluid between the "FULL" and "ADD" marks.

you put a mixture of water and anti-freeze/anti-boil in the water. The specified ratio should be on the coolant bottle. Keep it more towards the full mark.
