degass bottle refilled acouple times
got the new 2010 2.3L standard and when i picked it up in april the degas bottle was half full, I drove it 2472 kms and it went to minimum, refilled it to 3/4 and now at 4480 kms its back to min level. I figured I put in about 200 mls total of that super gold antifreeze per spec, thats less then a cup. I spoke to ford and brought it in ,the visually inspected it figuring I'm over reacting. because it was running both times it was hot so the level was up between high and low mark, 2 times. Had I not refilled it would be way below, minimum mark.
last time on the way back from toronto I dropped into the dealer I bought from in burlington and the service manager said it could be a air lock, I'm thinking other wise.
For a new truck is it possible of a air lock seeing I'm using the heater but I feel thats strange for a new vehicle,thats suppose to be pdi'd hahahahahha. In the summer I wasnt using heater, evaporation possible, heat, block heater?
its back to minimum , the guy said bring it in when its a inch below minimum, OK, so what a guy to do? I have to keep adding, the degas level between high and low holds like a cup 250mls, sh*tty design if my calcs are right.
I downloaded ford service tech page and it says to fill to max when its cold.
another forum says to run it at minimum.
Any ford techs here who work on the 2.3 engine and know the cooling system or members who are acquainted with this?
Is this a classy name for a overflow system can?
I'm waiting for my 9000 first check to have it pressure tested, demanding. I usually do my first oil change at 5000, way ahead of ford recommendation.
but this time I will wait because of this coolant thing. It might be a air lock???
