Hi, new guy here. I am a full time RVer currently at mobile rest in Benson AZ. I have a 2000 International 4700 truck setup for towing a large 5th Trailer. The motor is a DT530 in-line 6 diesel. While moving to Benson I blew the engine, got coolant into the crankcase somehow, donít know how. Anyway had it replaced with a re-manfactered DT530. Very expensive. I have some questions about the coolant system on the new engine, that I would like to discuss with anyone who has experience/issues with varying coolant levels.

Every time I drive the truck and then park it, and after being parked overnight the coolant level is never the same in the reserve tank. Why? I have had the coolant system checked for exhaust leaks, pressure leaks, and coolant leaks. I am afraid to go anywhere. I am concerned about towing the trailer as could end up on the side of the road broke down. I would really like to talk to someone over the phone about this, not sure on how to go about setting this up. Any help would be greatly appreciated
