Question about 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche

1 Answer

Just purchased a 2002 Avalanche with 230,000 miles in PRISTINE shape. Had it a week and now the LOW COOLANT LIGHT came on. Husband was driving it to work so it will be a while till we can check the level and also the oil for any milky substance. Any other ideas on what it can be?

Temperature light came on 2002 VW Passat wagon backing out of garage today, slight burning smell. Returned after 2 miles. Have experienced this smell on and off since oil & filter change several weeks...


You can see the coolant level by looking through the opaque round coolant reservoir. It should be just over the middle. There's a line indication proper level. Orange Dexcool meets the VW specification and is generally available. The rear coolant flange can warp and seep over time and leaks onto hot parts. That's probably why you smell it.

I GOT A 2002 MADZA TRIBUTE THERE A A LIGHT ON THE DASH BOARD THE SHAPE OF A HOUSE i DON'T KNOW WHAT ITS MEAN


I think the warning light is meant to be in the shape of a radiator - check your coolant level - it generally means your coolant is low. The coolant level sensor often fails on Mazda's however, so your 'problem' might actually be a dodgy sensor not a lack of coolant at all.
Hope this helps, Sherwin

Check engine light sensors have been reset but don't show a reading


U will need to drive a mixture of stop and go, city low speed and freeway miles, this can take a week and 20-50 miles or so for the system to finish it's internal self testing. this is called a drive cycle test.

Blue low engine coolant temperture indicator light is on


I also recently bought a 2002. According to the owner's manual the blue light does not indicate a problem unless it stays on after the car warms up. If you have an automatic it will not shift into fourth gear until the coolant warms up at which time the light should go off. Have only had the car for a week and notice the blue light goes off after a mile or two of driving in temperatures in the teens to 30's. I don't know how much outside temp affects it.

Low coolant light


Have the car put on a rack and look for a white powder, this will be the residue left by the coolant leak, if you find nothing then pressure test the system and look for a pressure drop after a few minutes, if you have a loss of pressure then the system is leaking, if there is no sign of the leak then it is going inside one of the cylinders.
