Hi all I've got a 03 plate warrior 2.5 td. I had a mysterious leak at lunch time today after short visit to the shop 5 miles round trip left ticking over after for about minute or two. turned it off and sat eating lunch and about 3/4  minutes after, my work mates told me my truck was leaking and it dropped all the engine coolant. Had the RAC out to try figure it out as we couldn't work out where it had leaked from. The RAC filled it up left running no leak. Followed me to my hotel 20 mile away to get up to running temp stayed half way up on temp gauge whole way back no loss of water anywhere, any help would be much appreciated long shot I know but maybe someone had something similar.

 Cheers alex

maybe the therostat opens and lets the water move freely around and when it is cold it does not
