Hmmm . . . low coolant warning

yet every time I check it , it is fine
was wondering (after reading some posts here)
I had the alternator replaced by a local shop
maybe if they did not follow the bleed procedure here?

(closest BMW dealer is 100 miles away)
and hard to trust locals here for anything

will try the bleed screw myself
everyone talks about the bleed crew - but where is it??

little confused - please advise
once again - I removed the radiator cap
engine stone cold
lots of 'hissing'
does this mean system has full pressure??
also - for the fist time - heard some bubbles
(about 3 seconds worth) as I removed the cap
the expansion tank looked empty
but after only about 4 ounces???
the red stick started to rise
do I understand correctly - that with a cold engine - the stick should barely float???
