|As Madmaxx suggested... add some coolant to the bottle, maybe not full, half way between "min' and "full", watch what happens, if the coolant is pulled into the radiator then your system is other than reflected in the bottle. If nothing happens then you still have room for expansion.
Yes you want expansion room in the bottle but the minimum level is just that a minimum, higher than min is better... IMHO ! Sort of like the engine oil, if it is at min... it is time to add oil !
I never liked the systems with the sealed caps... I would consider replacing the cap with something other than a seal cap, just me !
Engine Temp... I know the newer engine like it hotter but I was thinking 200 all the time is better than 220...(???), what about the Thermostat, have you replaced it recently ?
After reading your post about the temperature readings when you are going up hill, I am thinking as the others, coolant level is off !
How's your heater air temperature, if it goes cool and hot, then I would lean even more to the coolant level.
