Your coolant overflow/recovery tank has a level sensor in it. If the level light won't go off, and the coolant level is where it should be, this sensor has probably failed. Check the tank for a wired (powered) part, and make sure that it is plugged in securely. If the plug connection is OK, check with your parts store for a low-cost replacement sensor.

@aol.comI have already had my coolant system replaced. 1.5yrs. later my check coolant light comes on. What should I do. Try to refill?

there is a low coolet sensor in the overflow tank, you are just low on coolent just top it off the light will go out if the light comes back on have the system checked for a leak, there might be a very small leak that you might not be able to find and you will just have to add a little coolent every year or so...good luck

1998 Chevy Cavalier z24 2.4 low coolent

Smelling antifreeze from the coolent A !
Definitely a leak!
Hopefully not a head gasket leak!
Try warming it up without any accessories on until it gets good and hot, pop the hood and look all around!
