I had this problem with mine as well along with the loud noise it makes when the light comes on. People will say its your coolant seals, which is costly, but probably not the prob. Here is a way to fix it and will cost you 5 bucks. Go buy a new radiator cap and put it on. Thats it! I bought my 88 for $700 becos the person got tired of that noise and the light coming on. They are still upset with me cos I fixed it for so cheap!

My early wRning light for low radiator fluid comes on at the start turn on my ignition, but it goes away shortly after. I bought 50/50 and filled the coolant reservoir to the full line. But the light still...


The CHECK COOLANT indicator illuminates when the coolant level is low in the coolant recovery reservoir. The low coolant level switch is probably in or on the coolant reservoir !

I have a red warning light showing on my dash on my mazda rx8, looks like a little bird cage, or a little temple or an upside down fuel filter,what is it

Its the low coolant light. Check the coolant level when the engine is cold. Add coolant as necessary. Take a quick peak in the engine compartment and under the car to see if there are any noticeable coolant leaks. If you don't see anything continue to monitor the coolant level. If it goes down again than there is definitely a leak and should be pressure checked to find the source.

Let me know if you have any other questions and I'll be happy to help.

Saab 9-3 Aero convertible 2006 model coming up with message "Coolant level low please refill" Which coolant do I need to buy and the price and can I do it my self? How do I locate the correct...


Most probably is a leak somewhere, the sensor in the reservoir picks up when the level is low as to prevent engine damage. I would get it checked out. when repairing the water leak they should automaticly replace the coolant so i would just top it up with normal tap water till then. be carefull the water can burn you, so only open the bottle once the car is cold.

Hello, I am the owner of a 2005 jaguar x-type. Upon start up when driving away I notice a "gurgling" sound coming from the engine in the location of the glove box.


Sounds like air in cooling system. Coolant comes through to back of glove box area for your heat supply.
Have you noticed less available heat than normal?

Check the coolant level in radiator, not just the top up bottle. DO THIS WHEN ENGINE IS COLD as hot system is under pressure.

Possibility of head gasket leak suppling gases to coolant system. IF so may be producing some persistant heavy white steamy exhaust, though not necessarily.

Topping up coolant will (should) make noise go away at least temporarily. You should look to see if any obvious leaks or wet spots at hose clamps and heater hose connections.

When engine is cold, open Radiator cap, look down (flash light helps?) to see fluid level, should be full to top.
If not, top up with correct coolant mix, leaving cap off, start motor and allow to idle till warm. If level drops top off some more. Watch the fluid as it flows past cap opening. a few bubbles for a few mins may be normal, but continous stream of bubbles indicate head gasket leak. Turn on the heat in car to full, (not the fan, just heat level) gently rev the engine and top up fluid at same time, (2 people) replace cap. Done. If there are no apparent problems.

If noise returns or does not go away, you'll need a professional inspection.

There is a humming noise that I only notice with acceleration and there my low coolant light is on, even though the fluids are fine(I checked in the back up tank and in the radiator cap) I dont understand...


The coolant sensor is most likely bad is the reason you getting the coolant light. It's located inside the overflow tank and it's job is to let you know when the coolant level is low., it's not a big deal just keep a check on the coolant level if you don't get it fixed ant time soon. The humming noise could be different things from a vacuum leak to a pulley issue or even a bad tire, this is a matter of getting someone to drive the car and notice where the humming could be coming from. Do you know if it's coming from the front or back, driver or pass side? Good Luck. Check out about the humming before the sensor.

The noise you are hearing and feeling is very likely due to a low fluid level. I'd suggest you start by filling the power steering reservoir to the correct level with the correct fluid. Cycle the steering from lock to lock a few times to see if the noise gets better or goes away completely. Monitor the fluid level to determine how quickly the fluid leaks out and also to see if you can tell where the leak is coming from.

Be aware though that the longer you drive the car with a low fluid level condition, the more damage you will cause and the more expensive the repair will be.

Coolant warning lights keeps coming on


Hello what i would do replace the fluid level run your car with the heater on hood up watch under your car for any fluid leaking if so try to determin about where it is coming from one of the hoses could have a small hole or a clamps not tight enough the right way is with a pressure checker but this is the best way for non proffesional rule out all hoses clamps and over flow bottle leaks before you start replacing parts goodluck please rate thanks
