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.

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.

I have 2 problems, the low coolant light comes on and the air conditioning blows warm, does it have a leak in air conditioner and where can I add coolant (what kind?); and the security light comes on and...


Low coolant is detected by a sensor inside the plastic resevoir tank. These things lie, so if the resevoir has plenty of coolant, it's probably a dirty or faulty sensor. If you can't see coolant, add it directly to the resevoir. As for the A/C, you can purchase an A/C pressure gauge or complete check and fill kit at a parts store and follow the directions for using it. If the pressure reads low, with the car running and A/C on full blast, add refrigerant until you hear the compressor turn on. Check your gauge again. Once you have it to pressure, you should be good to go. If it never gets there, you have problems. If it gets there and stops working again days later, you have a slow leak.

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...

Water is filling up under my mats in the front seat. I think the air condition is clogging on the front passengar side what do I do?


I don't think it's your air conditioning, most often times when you get water in the cabin on the floor boards it's a bad heater core. Do you smell like a sweet odor? If you do check your coolant level in the radiator and/or resivior, if it's below your minimum fill line that's gonna be your problem. Hopes it's helpful.

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.

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..
