Subject: Re: coolant level keeps dropping.

Just got car back from dealer. No leaks. They left the car under 15lbs of pressure over night and with three people looking, no spots on or in car, no puffs of steam or smoke out the exhaust. What the general consensus is, that the 2.8 ltr motor has some low pressure spots, or air pocket areas. The dealer has noticed that the light comes on at about 1500 miles and then again at between 5000 and 8000. No lights after that. GO figure!!!! Just keep an eye out and I am going to keep dates as to when fluid was added.
