    You sure can.

    But a vehicle's cooling system has no direct relation to a vehicle's A/C system.

    Sure; but do not over do it, keep the balance around 50/50 half anti freeze half water. I use distilled water my self. And why you not using your AC? In this hot weather if you have working AC use IT!

    You had better stay out from under the hood!

    Antifreeze goes into the radiator to cool the motor and has nothing to do with the AC system.

    Of course you can since one has nothing to do with the other.

    The cooling system of the engine has nothing to do with the AC. You NEED to keep a certain level of radiator fluid all the time especially in the summer when it's hotter than heck out there.

    The fact that it's anti-freeze is to keep it from freezing solid and damaging the engine during the winter.

    So yes...you can add anti-freeze...just wait until the car's engine has cooled off before you do.

    What does adding antifreeze to your car and not using AC have to do with each other? Nothing. But you do need antifreeze in you cooling system so if low I'd suggest adding some.
