    Respected,.
    I own an Avensis 2007 2.0d4d and it happens that I lose antifreeze, when at maximum it drops to a minimum in a few days and no longer moves from there. The temperature is ok, it's going fine.
    I don't understand what the trick is, the three masters and each one told me differently
