install a coolant recovery system. It will let your system seek it's own level without dumping coolant on the ground.

+1 for the coolant recovery. It'll take a number of cycles to purge all of the air out of the system. In the meantime, keep the recovery tank half filled. When finished, the coolant should be just at the edge of the tank filler lip.
Happy trails!

your overflow hose from the radiator needs to be at the bottom of the tank, and if the radiator gets low when the car cools off it will draw in some coolant. but thats only if its boiling it off somewhere else. if its filled properly it wont spit or draw any coolant

Hi,
The ideal relationship is to have the coolant recovery about the same height as the rad. If by, whatever reasons,this is not possible (I know of very few instances for this) then, your recovery tank becomes an expansion tank. This means, a blank non-pressurized cap on the rad and and your pressure cap of 7-8lbs (non-AC) is on the expansion tank.
Happy Motoring!
