That is telling you that the Motor is low on Coolant or is Overheating.

Transmision wont go into gear no drive indicator

Did you replace the lost transmission fluid and rechecked the oil level after starting. Secondly if the torque converter moved forward without you knowing it, the converter may not be properly connected to the front pump and it won't be working Lastly ensure that all electrical wiring connectors are properly connected and not loose.

Water leaking underneath the motor

A little leakage is normal. Also the A/C will drip water, but that comes down from the firewall area.

From the motor, it may indicate a leaky water pump. This will drip from the front of the engine which is the right side as the driver looks. The pump is located under the timing belt cover.

Also check all your large hoses to see if a leak has developed at any joint.

The V6 engine often develops a water leak under the intake manifold which is hard to see. The water appears on top of the transmission. Camrys will often also get a split in the plastic radiator top tank, so look there.

If you are not losing large amounts of water, you have a while to track it down at leisure !

I have a water leak on the passenger side, bottom of motor. Is the water pump located on the bottom side of this motor?

Normally, the water pump is in the front of the engine. Normally, the pump is belt driven. Look for hoses that go into the motor where the belts are located (fo around a pulley) at the front and the top or near the top of the engine. I am not certain for your make and model. Some cars (some high performance - like police cars) have electric water pumps ... look for a device inside the engine compartment (not the AC, not the power steering pump, not the air pump) that has large (and HOT) hoses going in and out. If your drip is in that area, you may be on to something.

Thanks for your interest in

I heard a small bang when from the engine this morning and now the battery light is continually on - do you know what that signifies please? Other symptoms, possibly conincidental. One of the indicator...

That small bang you heard was the radiator belt.It runs the alternator(battery charger)and also the water pump.The fan belt on your motor needs to be replaced NOW.Otherwise you may blow up the motor.It doesn,t take long.Hope this helps

Leaks small amount of coolant, but I don't see

Check the engine oil, see if the level is going up and what the condition is. you can take the oil cap off and inspect under it. if there is a milky fluid then the antifreeze is leaking in to your engine crank case which is bad for the engine bearing. The other thing to also check is the transmission fluid. make sure that its till bright red and not over filled to make sure it's not leaking in to your transmission through the transmission cooler which is apart of the radiator too. Good luck and keep me posted. Be glad to help.

2001 cavalier codes

P0621 - indicates a failure in the alternator lamp curcuit.
P0304 - indicates a miss fire was detected in the #4 cylinder
U1040 - indicates a loss of communication with the ABS system
U1000 - Indicates a class 2 communication loss

None of those codes are relating to a transmission failure (P0700-P0702)

I would have a visual look at the transmission and verify that all electrical wires are connected and tight. Then I would have the transmission serviced if it hasn't been within the last 35,000 miles.

Have the trouble codes cleared and address the ones that return.

After that you may be looking at an internal transmission adjustment and/or repair.

Good luck.
