Is this correct??
Who did the engine rebuild ? Is it under warranty? There should be no loss of coolant, and certainly no "creamy" colored oil on a new engine. Notify the engine rebuilder to get it documented before the warranty expires and their recommendation on a replacement motor. Use Ford Gold coolant or Zerex G-05 coolant, not the Prestone green stuff.
