Deal with this before you have serious electrical problems. Most likely a heater core/ hose leak spraying all over. Hopefully just a loose hose clamp. get behind dash with bright flashlight and try to find direction/ point of leak , realize that it may be spraying...

Obviously it's temperature gauge light. Check for coolant level first. Then check for coolant leak. If coolant is leaking out of your car, the lower coolant levels in your engine will cause it to overheat. If you have your heater on and it starts blowing hot air instead of cool, your engine is low on coolant. This will cause to flash a warning light on your car's dashboard.

If heater core is leaking coolant will this cause engine to over heat?


Yes it can, the coolant leaks from the heater core, and causes the engine to lose coolant. The sad part is, if your heater core in underneath your dashboard, you will have coolant in the floorboard.

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee that leaks fluid under the car. Took it to Sport Durst. Told them about the leak and that it sounds like water flowing through the dashboard. My low coolant light was


Put a large piece of light paper under the cars or truck motor area and let it set overnight. In the morning see what color the fluid is. Put your finger in the fluid that has leaked if any is there and see if it feels like water or oil. Coolant could be orange or green depending on the type you use. Coolant can sometimes be confused with transmission fluid. Check the water hoses that go into the dashboard for leaks. Also check for dampness on the passenger side of the front seat on the carpet area. If it is wet it is your heater coil that has a leak. Hope this hopes.

Smell and white smoke coming thur ac vents


Your heater core has developed a leak (of coolant). The smell is the "sweet" smell of ethylene glycol,
a component of engine coolant. The white smoke is steam coming from the heated coolant evaporating.
The coolant is dripping into your duct work under the dashboard, and apparently being evaporated
out of the ductwork and sent into the passenger compartment, meaning its a small leak.
When the leak gets worse, you may get wet carpet on the front passenger side.

Replaced water pump, alternator, radiator, crank sensor and no coolant leaks and car has antifreeze, but why is low coolant dashboard indicator light keep flashing on 97 saturn sl2


Inside the coolant reserve tank there is a sensor for coolant level.


Over time,this sensor can get stick.


Inspect the coolant reserve tank for crack or leak.

Locate the coolant level switch/sensor and soak it in clean warm water.

Make sure it's free to move up and down the float path.

Top off the coolant tank with coolant only.

It may be temperature sensor on radiator. Dashboard gets info from it. If this sensor is not good, ac will stop and dashboard willl show some strange temperatures.

You have an air leak in your coolant pipes under the dash.
There is air in the system.
When the engine is off the coolant is dripping onto the carpet.

Having problems with the low coolant display on dashboard


Well if your lucky your heater core is leaking and I believe it would be leaking under the dashboard on the passenger side, feel the floor and see if it's wet. If that's not the problem than you may have a blown headgasket. One way you can check that is to look at your oil, if it has a little bit of a yellowish milky type color in it, it's your headgasket. If it's a small leak and it hasn't put enough into the oil yet you may to need have the cylinders pressure tested to check it. Good luck!
