So. if filled the coolant per instructions. But a couple of notes

The floating dipstick thing was at the top even when I only had a gallon in there. Can someone explain that pos to me?

The bottom of my reservoir was leaking where it met the mounting bracket. It was leaking before I even turned the car on. It was not a large leak so I ran the vehicle anyway. Once up to temperature I put all my weight on top of it and try to make sure it sealed better. This morning there is no fluid under the car.

Oh the floating dipstick thing is still at the top.
