It's normal for some fluid to be forced into the reservoir during operation due to fluid expansion and pressure. Usually the fluid in the reservoir will increase or decrease depending on what temperature the engine is at. Unless your truck is overheating I woudn't worry too much; just make sure the fluid level doesn't get too low or too high in the reservoir. If it is running hotter than normal and excessive amounts of fluid are being forced in to the reservoir you might have a blown head gasket. As far as the hoses collapsing; I have a 2001 Ford ranger 4.0 V6 and I noticed that the top radiator hose appeared to be collapsing in one of its bends. I installed a radiator clamp on the hose at that spot just to keep it round and from pinching itself off. It probably happens from the heat; just keep an eye on it. It may be that your hoses need replacing; I know mine did the same thing after just having been installed brand new though. God bless you and I hope everything works out for the best!!! : )

there is air in cooling system, you have to find out air bleeding screw on any of coolant hose. make lose that screw and start car let it get heat up and keep track on coolant level same time coolant tank cap should be open,coolant will flow out from that screw you keep top up coolant in tank, let this process go for 15 min and then tight the screw and close tank cap, problem is solved.

yes it is safe -your brakes will work normally only difference u will see is if u hit[stomp] on the brake hard will cause wheels to lock up[skid] check the sensors wiring ,connections and connection to clips the sensor is incorporated into the wheel hub but the wiring and clips connections are exposed which can get damaged or hit by road debris -if u remove the wheel will see wire running into back of rotor --to replace will have to replace the whole hub[wheel bearing] average price about $80 for part if diy

First locate it and get a wrench and unscrew it from the exhaust pipe and unplug it from the wiring harness and re-install the same way.
