Its very possible that is is low and the water expansion from warming it up satisfies the coolant sensor,so first off when the car is COLD check the radiator and overflow bottle,fill them both as needed and give it a try,have a good day DB

Low coolant light stays on until system heats


Your overflow tank(aka coolant recovery reservoir) is low on coolant. The coolant expands when warm and raises the level in the tank, which turns off your light. Top off the reservoir (when cool) to the "Full Cold" line. If you have to keep adding on a regular basis, then you have a leak somewhere in your cooling system, could even be the reservoir itself.

After warm up ,1999 DOHC Taurus shuts down no start till 15-20 min cool down,then starts and runs till warm up again,no lights on ??? Help


More likely its a temperature fault with a water temp or incoming air temp telling the ecu there's a problem. See if you can find an engine diagram of the various sensors and get an auto elect or good DIYer to help. Try "images" on google or bing for a diagram.

My temperature guage stays in the middle, is this ok?


Yes, the temperature gauge should normally stop in the middle, between the cold and hot points on the gauge. When the engine is cold the thermostat will be closed and will keep recirculating the coolant in the engine block until it warms up sufficiently. Then the temperature of the warm coolant will cause the thermostat to open the channel to the radiator to get rid of excess heat, which should stop the coolant from over heating. So the effect of the thermostat keeps the coolant at a fairly stable temperature. When the coolant runs low, it can't transfer enough heat to the radiator and the coolant and engine then over heats. Watch for radiator leaks under your car after you have been driving it. If the coolant goes low again fairly quickly you could have a leak in a hose or the radiator itself.

I just bought a 2003 Toyota Echo and when I start the car up, the blue "low engine coolant" light stays on for about a minute before shutting off. I've added coolant, so I know it is full,...


Make sure there is no air in the system, take the radiator cap off and let the engine idle for half an hour, as the air comes out the coolant will go low, ad more coolant and then close the cap on also make sure the resevour bottle is at its mark.

Check engine light is on with code number p1285 cylinder overheat. wat is causing this?


First check your coolant level. If low you have a leak somewhere. You may also be low &/or have an air pocket in cooling system. You will need to bleed system cold just open bleeder screw on top of waterpump then fill cooling system till coolant runs out of bleeder. Snug bleeder. Then run till warm loosen bleeder slowly make sure only coolant not air comes out. Be careful do not get burned. Also clear codes. Then see if thats all it was.If no more problems your done. If code reappears you have a leak or blown head gasket.

Blue low engine coolant temperture indicator light is on


I also recently bought a 2002. According to the owner's manual the blue light does not indicate a problem unless it stays on after the car warms up. If you have an automatic it will not shift into fourth gear until the coolant warms up at which time the light should go off. Have only had the car for a week and notice the blue light goes off after a mile or two of driving in temperatures in the teens to 30's. I don't know how much outside temp affects it.

01 mercury sable traction control & low coolant lights stay on.


check for something stuck in the wheels and as for the coolant light get the car running and up to warm temp and start adding coolant to the reserviour bottle until it is up to hot level because there maybe a bubble in the line but also if might be a bad switch in the reservior bottle itself

"Check engine" light stays on.


How many miles? One thing is with diesel engines the glow plugs do come back on till engine hits a low warm temp when it's cold out. You may see the light come one once or twice after it's first started.
