What is the Red box with arrow on dash display of 2001a saturn

That would be the low coolant light. Check the coolant level in the reservoir when the engine is cold. Add coolant as necessary. The light may not go off when the coolant level is full. Sometimes the level sensor stick. The simple solution for this is to gently wack the reservoir with a rubber mallet until the light goes out. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

There is a light come on the dash to the left of the glow light, what is it for.looks like bowl with a drip at the bottom.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. This is probably your oil check light. You need to check your oil level and make sure it is correct. It could also be a coolant light. Check your coolant level in the engine to make sure it is correct as well.

Why does my check engine light and coolant light come on?

The check engine light is on because the computer detected a problem. Take it to autozone and they will test it for free. They will let you know what is wrong with the car. The coolant light may be on because the coolant is low. Thank you for choosing FixYa.

Temperature light is flashing, i have no idea what that means. am i missing coolant, do i need to put some more oil in the car, i need to drive two hours straight tomorrow, im very worried.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action please do check the coolant level. You may need to fill up to correct the problem. Please do check the motor oil level too. Please take note that the coolant on the reservoir should sit on the proper level for pouring too much may cause it to overflow.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Abs, low coolant, trac off and service engine soon light comes on when running had a tune up and have the same problems please help wht else could be the reason.

multiple issues.

for abs and trac, please see my tip at . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

for coolant light I assume the coolant level is good. If yes, remove the connector from the sensor on the reservoir. If the light goes out, replace the sensor. If light stays on, the wiring is shorted and you'll have to trace it to repair the short.

for the engine light, please see my tip at These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

Cuando voy hacia arriba y la temperatura ambiente esta alta el carro comienza a perder potencia hasta que se apaga y la temperatura del motor no sube es transmicion automatica honda crv 1998

No hable Espanol.
But it sounds like a temperature problem.
Make sure there is enough coolant, (aqua).
The belts are tight.
The fan goes on.
The thermostat can be checked by feeling both radiator hoses.
They should both start cold.
One should slowly get warm as engine runs, but other stay cold.
When engine reaches full temperature, then the cold one instantly gets hot as thermostat opens.

Coolant light wont shut off after adding cooland 1992 300te

Hello, If you are sure that the reservoir is filled properly, unplug the 2 pin connector on the side of the reservoir and see if the light goes out. If the light goes out, you need to replace the sensor which is what the connector hooks to.
If you find this information to be correct would you please enter a "fixya" rating.
Thanks, Gator241
