Coolant leak?

Post by mymangochutney » Fri Jun 29, 2018 7:07 am

I bought my car used a few weeks ago, and the coolant reservoir was a bit lower than the min line.


I took it to the ford dealer and had the system drained, and pressure tested with NO leaks found!

They filled it above the max line, now a week later it's in the middle when the engine is cold.

I checked one of the weep holes and didn't see anything. The oil looks yellow and the cap doesn't have any crud on it.

if it was filled above the max after drained, it is normal to dropping of the line caused by air getting out of the pipes. Dont worry if the oil is still ok and no steam out from exhaust. See if the line keep droping during a longer period.
