SOURCE: car running hot
There is a level /float sensor inside the tank.
Wait until the engine is cold,empty the coolant tank and rinse.
Refill will 100% coolant to the COLD / COOL / LOW mark.

did you replace the thermostat when you put the radiator in,you could still have an air pocket in the system,recheck your coolant in the radiator when it is cold.
the next thing is to verify the cooling fans are working,when you see it hot check to see if it really is hot or gauge is lying,if it is hot see if the fans are running to maintain cooling temp,if they are not check coolant fan fuse and relay and last fan motors

it means just what it says..your low on engine coolant and that is causing it to run extra hot...this is not good! let car cooldown and take radiator cap off have a look inside with a flashlite..water level should be almost up to the filler neck. if you have the red dex-cool you"ll have to put in the same its not recomended to mix the green and red. if it doesnt your in luck just fill up a jug or get a garden hose and fill it up to the top if its low. leave cap off for now and put some water in the coolant tank if its empty only about halfway dont overfill. now start the engine and let it warm up for about a minute and see if the water level goes down if it does add a little more water up to the neck, now turn off the engine and let it stay like that for another minute to make sure trapped air can get out. Now put back on the cap. Now go for a 10 min drive around town and then see if the warnings have cleared and its running at a normal temp range. also park in a new locating so after you turn your car off you can check to see if its go a slow leak overnight.

Change the thermostat,and bleed the air out of the system,and make sure the cooling fans are coming on,and then going off,on there own,with the ac off,if this was helpful,please rate,thank you.

On the Owner's Manual there's a procedure you have to follow to bleed the air in the cooling system, until you bleed the system for air, the low coolant light will come on every time.
The process is rather simple and quick, all you need is a flat head screw driver.
DO NOT OPEN THE COOLING SYSTEM WHEN HOT.
Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!
