OK it would really be helpful if you created a signature describing your truck, what engine and tranny are in it, and anything else that could help a reader like myself know what you are working on. Hard to help if a guy doesn't know what we're dealing with.

It would also be helpful to provide more details and particulars about "my coolant issue", like, how much coolant is consumed and over how long. OK.

I am having the same problem with mine, but i do have white smoke from the exhaust, no over heating, missing in park but not in drive. also runs like a champ once your driving just don't seem to want to idle that well. i fill up the over fill jug about ever 3-4 weeks. seems to only burn antifreeze at start-up.
