I did open cap and wait til 190-195 water pump kicked in all seemed fine. Overflow seems to be fine but i'm loosing a bit of fluid. None on the floor however so its either burning off or leaking somewhere. Reservoir fills when hot and nearly drains when cool?

I'm still working on it.

Have coolant system pressure checked for internal leaks like head gasket/intake etc.
