    Sorry if this has been asked and answered. I searched for a while and could not find a conclusive answer.

    I just completed the EGR cleaning on my 2011 Prius. During the process a couple of cups (?) worth of coolant was collected from the hoses.

    My issue is the coolant reservoir is showing full and I did not have to replace the coolant.

    The bleeding procedure I followed was
    1. Uncap coolant reservoir
    2. Maintenance Mode
    3. Idle 5-10 Minutes (waited for radiator fan to kick on)
    4. Recap reservoir
    5. Run with heat on in the vehicle for 5 minutes
    What am I missing? Thanks!

    I went ahead and added the coolant. It brought it slightly above the full line and I suspect it will even out over the next couple of days.
