I finally got my car back from the shop and the water temperature light
started flashing periodically. the Temp gauge seems to be working fine
but what would cause the light to start flashing? Bad fuse maybe?
Check for corroded wires on the MFTS temperature sensor (near top radiator hose
where it attaches to engine.)
Also be sure that the coolant is to the correct level in the overflow tank. this
seems most likely to me. (Previously owned four T44s)
Probably not a fuse.
You *should* be able to use any coolant as long as it's the same colour
as the coolant in there now. Of course, don't get the super cheap stuff,
that's just always bad news no matter which car you have or whether it's
coolant or oil.
I think you only really need to worry about the special Pentosin stuff
when it comes to the hydraulic fluid (G00 2000, aka Goo 2k). Someone
please correct me if I'm wrong.
