I got the car used, with about 95,000 km on it. Has been working good, but
keep getting the "low coolant level" light come on ... even though the level
if up to the mark ... actually now a bit above it, since I tried adding a
bit of coolant to see if that would solve the problem ... it seemed to "fix"
it for a while ... maybe that was an illusion. On starting up these days,
the light goes off ... but with backing out of the parking spot, the light
comes back on.
Anybody else have this problem?
Man! I got ripped off. The check coolant light came on. A mechanic told me
that my radiator leaked and need to be replaced. So, I paid about $400
bucks for that. I should have known that it was just a faulty sensor.
Well, it is *possible* that you did have a leaking radiator and
actually were low on fluid and that the warning lamp was working
exactly as it is supposed to. That said, Midas/meinke and the rest
have, in my experience, usually done crappy work.
me too on my '90.. replaced it, still did it a while, then just kinda went
away eventually.. weird but no biggie..
only time it really bugged me was before I got around to fixing the broken
temp sensor.. that made me nervous..
