Coolant level in my reservoir changes level???

Some mornings it's at the max level sometimes it's at the minium level. Sometimes it's at the minium and then after running it it goes back to the max level or halfway between max and min. Does anyone else experience this? Is this anything to worry about. Im so freaking worried about these damn bolts in the head gaskets calling it a day.

I wouldn't be concerned at all as long as the truck isn't actually loosing coolant. If you have to start adding coolant be concerned, otherwise don't worry. Drew

This is normal, thats what the degas bottles function is, to hold excess coolant when temps and pressure cause expansion and contraction of the fluid volume.

try this sometime. After the truck has been parked and cooled a tad, release the cap on the degas bottle, as pressure escapes the coolant level will rise in the bottle.
