Well this sums up my problem. However, could not find any leak in the hose. Finally today it is not pouring rain or snowing! Will take a closer look. Currently it seems like it has been stable but overflow bottle a few inches over full and the top rad hose dose not vacuum back like it is supposed to and has no coolant init when not running.
