I know this means trouble in a gas engine but is this to be expected with a diesel engine?I just replaced the coolant and reservoir tank and after 800 miles I noticed the water was a little low and the brand new white tank is coated with a dry soot where the water level was when I filled it. I'm anticipating the worst unless someone with diesel knowledge could tell me different.
