For totalh8 from Jan, how to add coolant directly to radiator: as soon as you start the engine the do not drive warning about low coolant comes on.

Dear Old-ish,
You are on the right track.
I should suggest you try to find an end of the top radiator hose, either on the radiator or on the engine block.
With the engine cold, and the coolant tank lid off, you may take the hose clamp off and fill the radiator and engine only as far as the hose will let you.
If you do detach the hose, do it VERY slowly because you do not wish to lose coolant just in case the engine is full up to the end of the hose you detach.
Perhaps this will fill it enough to turn off the "do-not-drive-light."
Some cars ( you have not mentioned what you have) have a radiator cap hidden beneath a plastic shield on top of the engine.
The biggest item is now.
If, in fact, you are low on coolant, and the light is on legitimately, you need to find out now as to the reason why it is low.
Running low on coolant can destroy your engine whilst you are driving it.
God bless your efforts.

Lean fuel code for 2006 toyota corolla runs rough in cold weather if you do not let it warm up. If the car is warmed up no problem, but check engine light comes on

Automatic idle control module and the valve it controls on the engine need attention. Sometimes a simple cleaning of the valve is all that's needed.

Why does my 96 corolla need 5 to 10 mints of warm up before driving ? if it doesn't warm up long enough it will shut down and the check engine light will appear . its never done this before . . I've...

It may well be a cold start injector/air meter/sensor at fault.
Don't waste time and money changing things to cure the problem. The cheapest way is to take the car for a diagnostic check. They should be able to identify the fault immediately. You can then save money by rectifying the fault yourself ..

2006 Chevrolet HHR LT Problem

After searching around, I found several posts that suggested reseating all the relays and fuses under the hood. After checking, I noticed nearly all of them were not seated well. I pushed them all down and I haven't had the problem since.

I have a Toyota corolla 2002. It is only 56'000 miles. Recently the gas mileage becomes so bad. It gives like 21 MPG. There is no check engine light. I changed the air filter and checked out the sparkles...

I have seen this problem countless times, and no computer can give you the answer, The problem is your ECT. The Engine Coolant Temp sensor. It tells the computer what temp the engine is at and it uses this input to regulate the fuel. When the engine is cold, the fuel is increased to act as the choke for easier starting. As the engine warms up, the fuel is cut back. When the sensor locks cold, the computer runs the engine in choke mode all the time, sending the fuel ecom\nomy down the toilet.
