Is it safe to drive whilst the yellow engine symbol is on the dashboard?

If it is the check engine light, Yellow light that looks like a engine, or may say "Check engine", Yes, it is safe to drive until you can get it checked. As long as the vehicle is driving normal. If the light starts flashing, DO NOT DRIVE it. A flashing check engine light means a misfire and could cause a fire due to raw fuel going down the exhaust into the cat converters.

I have a 2000 crown Victoria 4.6 police interceptor and when I drive for about 30 to 60 minutes the coolant light wanna flash on and check engine light come and car starts losing power and cutts off

can you catch the check engine light while its on and scan for the codes? If you can get the code(s) i should be able to tell you exactly what the problem is. Do you notice if the vehicle heats up or does the coolant light just flash after 30-60 mins? It could possibly be your water pump failing or the belt that runs it. I would check that along with the codes. Please advise

Why does the check engine light flash

When a check engine light flashes it is an indication of a serious emissions problem detected by the computer. It is advisable not to drive very long under these conditions because harm can come to the catalytic converter and oxygen sensors. Have the fault codes read to determine the nature of the problem. AutoZone will do it for free.

Glow light flashes

Correct - the glow light flashing is an indication that there is fault. Often this is associated with a blown brake bulb or faulty brake switch.

The Check Engine light usually means the car has an emission system problem. Diagnosis requires an OBD2 scanner.

But first, check your gas cap. Is it loose? How good is the O-ring or gasket? A poor seal is the most common Check Engine cause.

Good luck.
