Pull the dipstick and see what it looks like. Clear or dirty oily is normal. Something that looks like mayonnaise shows water (e.g. from a failed head gasket) is getting into the sump and emulsifying.

Plumb the expansion tank into the top hose and you will see immediately if air (or steam! ) is entering the system! Simples! Do it now! You know it makes sense!
