Engine issues on 03 expedition?

Just had engine rebuilt in 03 ford expedition. Has 1,000 miles on new engine. Husband noticed defroster air wasn't getting warm. Checked the coolant and it was empty. Checked oil , noticed under cap it was a creamy Carmel color. :( any advise? Was told by mechanic it just evaporated and I need to check it all the time and color under cap was condensation. Is this correct??

Re: Engine issues on 03 expedition?

Coolant just doesn't evaporate . There either must be a leak in the cooling system or it was not correctly filled , bled or topped up . You should not need to continually check coolant level .You can get the emulsified oil in the cap through condensation but it can also signify head gasket leak , causing coolant loss .Get it checked out before any damage occurs .
