Question about 2000 Buick Century
Why is my 2000 buick century coolant light always on
You may want to check your manual. There is usually a light to tell you the coolant level in your reserve or overflow tank is low, and there is another light to tell you the system is overheating due to not enough coolant in the entire system. Nonetheless if either light remains on and you have refilled the overflow/reserve tank it is time to look for a leak. Leaks can be at hoses, in gaskets, and other locations. A puddle on the floor where the car is usually parked can help you locate a cracked hose or loose clamp, an antifreeze smell in your exhaust can help you locate a much worse problem.Often you may detect an antifreeze smell only after the car is warmed up which can be a leak which is running onto an exhaust pipe.

The coolant level sensor is located on the radiator. If you are looking at the engine from the front of the car it will be on the left side. There will some kind of clip holding it in the radiator. Removed the clip and pull the sensor out. You will lose coolant so try to swap it out quick or drain some of the coolant out. Once new sensor is installed, install clip to keep the sensor in place and reconnect the wires to the sensor. Crank the engine and make sure the coolant level is full. This should correct your problem.
