RE: [DML] Coolant Coming Out

Its normal for the expansion tank to be only half full. As the car warms it
uses this air space for the coolant to expand into. If the expansion bottle
is full the coolant will be pushed out of the overflow. When the car cools
overnight the cap will allow air back into the tank.

Subject: [DML] Coolant Coming Out

Update:  I've been putting in coolant for the last several mornings.  
When I stop the car some of the coolant comes out of the hose that connects
to where the coolant cap is.  Not alot, but some.  I'm assuming it's coming
out when I'm driving, but I don't know that.  
Other than the fact I keep putting more in.  Any ideas what would cause
that?  Thanks very much for the advice.
