    just let hte engine run while you fill it up. if it keeps getting lower you'll have some sort of leak somewhere; if it doesn't puddle under the car you've lost a head gasket.

    no no.....sometimes the coolant gets into ur engine and mixes with the oil ....check the dipstick and see the consistancy of the oil

    No. If you have a blown head gasket it leaks into the oil and the oil looks milky.

    It almost sounds like the thermostat isn't opening and sending the coolant straight into the overflow reservoir..
