COLD ENGINE THIS MORNING, BLUE COLD COOLANT LT ON. LESS THAN A MILE LATER OVERHEAT LT STARTS FLASHING. KNOWING ENGINE COLD, CONTINUE DRIVING, LIGHT GOES OUT AFTER A SHORT WHILE. TOTAL DISTANCE TRAVELED ABOUT 2 MILES AT 45 MPH. CONTINUE DRIVING 5 OR 6 MILES, NO PROBLEM. BACK HOME, IN THE PM I CHECK COOLANT LEVEL AND IT IS LOW. JUST FILLED A FEW WEEKS AGO, HAVEN'T NOTICED ANY LEAKS.
