Re: Coolant level question

I have a quick follow up story. When this happened i was using straight distilled water. I did this just in case i had some kind of leak during the break in period. I figured that if i did have a leak it would be less mess if i was only using water. The plan was to drain some water out and replace it with coolant. What i didn't think about was the fact that the coolant raises the boiling point significantly. After draining out the water and refilling with coolant to get a proper mix, the level has stayed much closer to what i would expect. It also seemed to puke less coolant when fully warmed up. I think the combination of only using water and not ever having owned a car with an open system caused me to get overly worried.
