Usually the sensor is in the bottom of the overflow tank or on the side of the radiator.

SOURCE: how do I change the coolan sensor in a 2002 Monte

the low coolant sensor is on the side of the radiator about 3 04 inches below the radiator cap. Yuo can unclip the wire and then there is a clip I think or it may just push in with an o ring around the nipp;e. So you will have to wiggle it out. I have the same problem. I just unplugged the damn thing. (disconect the wire)

Code P1870 for a 1996 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Z34 3.4 litre


Very common Transmission code - solution # 1 check to be sure Fluid is full . If not trans code sent plus will turn on check engine light or service engine soon . # 2 be sure condition of fluid is Good / Not worn out . Fluid must be Red / Reddish in color Cold and When hot- warm still have red / even lighter than when cold .# 3 if a higher than 50,000 mile car used in heavy rush hour traffic during hot weather then change fluid to give it fresh oil / Trans will fight heat better and save you a $$ 2000 repair bill . # 4 most important of all you can save a Trans by adding Lucas Trans treatment it is $ 20 some places but well worth $$ to extend life of vehicle if one in need of saving $$ .This can even be added to existing fluid if color is still reddish .

Low oil light comes on but goes out after restart.. this started happening recently .. the oil lvl is fine ive checked it many times it only comes on after its sat overnight at the first start.. shut it...


In this case it is usually the low oil level sensor that is defective; however it could be an issue in that electrical circuit as well from the scenario you have given.

Low coolant light,low oil and check engine light


Most likely it is the sensor, it is located on the radiator near the battery, it will stay off if you unplug it, Check the fuses and relays though just to make sure, oil pressure sensor possibly but again check fuses
