I have a question. I don't know why the overfill resevior for the coolant takes up sooo much space, yet, the 'full' mark is way down there on the bottom. Does coolant expand? Wierd. :eek:

I'm guessing the overfill has to go somewhere..

Would you like it to go all over your engine and the ground?

Maybe it's a safety type deal. If the car overheats it has a place to store the excess hot fluid that comes out and gives a contained space for the steam to condense too.
