Engine coolant


I am new to the site so apologies if this in posted in the wrong area!

I have a 2008 LR3 in Dubai and struggling to get help on this even from a Land Rover dealer!!

I have had issues with my engine coolant levels. A new radiator was fitted due to apparent leak. I then had what seemed to be decreasing engine coolant levels but with no apparent signes of a head gasket failure.

The issue I now have is that if I drive the car. Stop and then re drive the car the engine coolant warning comes on. Upon inspecting the coolant level in the expansion tank it does indeed show that the coolant level is way down at the bottom of the tank however as soon as I open the filler cap the level rises to above the max fill level. The issues then goes away but this has been happening for the past few days without the apparent need to top it up. Engine temp is in the normal range but it is very frustrating to have to keep opening the filler cap and I at a loss why this is happening!

Any help would be much appreciated as I wanting to sell the car!

Many thanks!!
