    I checked my coolant level today and it was low. I'm hoping is from the swap and the car finally got rid of all the air. I added to proper level. I checked my heater hoses, radiator hoses, front coolant pipe and I don't see any leaks. I don't see any coolant on the floor either. I'm hoping is not leaking from the rear plugs.

    just take off the coolant lid and start it and let it sit until the temp is all the way up.... then put the lid back on... and shut off and let it cool off
    then repeat until all the air is out.

    when I did my coolant lines I had quite a bit of coolant drain out, so it's not strange that you have to add some more back then you think.

    If you were losing an amount that was noticeable by a low level....You would definitly be able to smell it if you used your sniffer around the engine bay.
