Low coolant means your reservoir, not radiator. The computer can't tell how much coolant you have. The reservoir has a senor on the bottom which says it's low. This is a good way to tell you have a leak and as an engine cools it sucks more out of the reservoir each time. Foul smell from a/c would have nothing to do with it. A/c's just absorb odors and condensation stores it.

Why has my air conditioning stopped blowing cold air , engine light come on and coolant readout (in the driver info. center)a stopped showing any numbers


If your check engine light is on you usually have a code. Where I live several auto part stores will read the code for free. It would help to have a code.
If you have 2 fans on the radiator one should come on when you turn the A/C on. The other fan come on when engine reaches engine operating temperature. You have relay for compressor and the fan motor. Does the inside fan stop blowing. If a fuse was blown they should not work at all but a relay could drop out and in. I have found a bad relay over the years by checking the temperature of the relays, it is not always the case.. I have had a couple relays which were a lot hotter than the others, helped identify the bad relay. you can get the relay checked at the auto parts store. The low pressure switch could be creating problems with low Freon pressure. some info fuse relay below.

My low coolant light keeps coming, i replace the Thermostat on yesterday but got in car this morning and light came right back on put water in and drove to work when i got to work cut car off look under...


Low coolant doesnt have anything to do with the thermostat. If the coolant bottle was over filled, it will push out, it needs some air space. only fill it to the full line. If the low coolant light is on, but its not really low, the sensor may be bad. Be sure to use the correct coolant DEXCOOL.

Why is the coolent light on


There is either a low fluid condition in the coolant resevoir under the hood (check cold) or the sensor has failed. If the system is low, add a little coolant until the resevoir is filled and then turn the key on to see if the light reset. If it does not, replacement of the sensor will be required.

My kia spectra engine light is flashing and when i start car smoke comes out while spitting out gas out back pipe of my care, what does this mean


Are you very sure its spitting out gas? If smoke is light in color, you have a blown head gasket-coolant level will drop and you can smell the odor of coolant in the air. If you're sure you have unburned fuel spitting out your exhaust, this is extremely dangerous to everyone around you so don't run it and get it to a shop or reply back to me...

My air conditioning blows hot air. Won't accept


Is the system low on Freon? If not, you most likely have a bad A/C compressor, or a bad low pressure switch.

Air Conditioning in my PT Cruiser stopped working...


probably low on...no, not coolant! The AC system is separate from the coolant system. The AC needs to be recharged with
R134A, a special refrigerant used only for air conditioning, much like the old Freon or R12 it replaced. R12 was bad for ozone depletion, so about 20 years ago the federal government mandated a change to R134A.
Just go to a shop and tell the service people you may need the AC system recharged.

Coolant leaking out


Are you sure it's coolant and not just water? If it's coolant, then you have a bad heater core. Are you sure it's coming from the weep drain, "drain on firewall." Are you sure there's not a leaky hose elsewhere?

Low coolant light always on


Low coolant means just that, find out if the system is really low or the light is receiving a false signal from the low coolant sensor, just check the level in the coolant recovery tank and the make sure the radiator tank is full, if you are low on coolant then check out why, a leak is probable, most likely a water pump or hose related issue, and no a bad thermostat will not in itself turn on the low coolant light unless the engine boils over and the system becomes low. Remember never ever open a radiator cap on a hot engine, you would be surprised how many professional mechanics get burned this way, be careful..
