    May I trouble a few of you to show me a picture of your reservoir when the engine is cold.
    I have two black marker lines on mine and my level seems low to me but I’m not completely sure where it should be.
    Thanks in advance!

    I see there is a min/max line. Should it be between the two when COLD?

    Also, the reason why I’m somewhat concerned is that on hot days I tend to smell coolant. I smelled it on my Taco and never had an issue. Normal?

    Yes, always check/refill your coolant because the system will be under pressure when hot, and it should be somewhere between min and max. If you sneak coolant and you're having to add some, then it definitely sounds like you have a leak somewhere. I would start checking around the water pump and thermostat.
