Re: xh 6cyl ute

If it is only doing it on occasion then there must be enough heat and expansion to max out the overflow bottle.

Is the bottle only being filled to the correct level when cold.

There should be a cold fill line which will not be to the top of the bottle. This allows for some expansion before the bottle is maxxed out.
