    Hi all I replaced my engine coolant temp sensor a week past Thursday and have been topping up with antifreeze most days so I thought I had air in the system however for the last 2 it has been ok I have probably driven 30 miles each day with no drop but today I checked it and it has dropped with no evidence of leakage I have also notice that I can wiggle my sensor around but it doesn't leak
    any thoughts .

    no mayo so hopefully the head gasket is ok

    It can take a little while to burp itself fully, so keep an eye on it, top up & see if it continues, if so then a pressure test on system is best option at 1-1.5bar overnight to see if it drops.

    This car makes me paranoid after the update I notice oil around the drivers side output shaft on the gearbox and then a noise from the rack when turning left at parking speeds its a bit of a money pit and its only done 35 k
