My 1995 oldsmobile 88 has had the low coolant light on when i fill the coolant tank it goes off. a day will pass and the light comes on again i check the coolant tank to find it is yet again empty. I see no leaking on the ground though the passenger side floor is wet. Is this a result of another problem? How can i fix it

Leaking coolant while parked and driving, leaking oil, tranny slipping and shutters and chirps when shifting, lagging acceleration, hard to drive up mountains


You need to have the cooling system pressure tested. This will tell you what and where the leaks are. The oil leaks are probably due to age of gaskets and seals. With age comes issues with vacuum lines too.

Low coolant light come on and off while I am driving or just starting. There is plenty of "water" in radiador and overflow tank.


Be sure the right coolant is in the car, orange colored Dexcool. I fthats good, then replace the coolant level sensor, in the right tank of the radiator. near the headlight. Of some cars its easier to replace the sensor if you take the headlight out.

need to perform a coolant pressure test. fill the reservoir and after the engine cools down fill the radiator, next start the engine and wait till the coolant system builds pressure then turn off the engine and using a mirror and flash light look for a leak.check water pump, hoses,radiator tanks for cracks,intake gasket at the corners espesically at the back next to the trans.also pull the carpet back and check for coolant leaking from the heater core,and last remove the sparkplugs and check for leaking head gaskets.hope this helped.

How do i reset the low coolant light on my 1992 oldsmobile cutlass supreme?


There is a sensor on the radiator below the filler neck that sometimes will get debris across the contacts of the sensor. I would recommend that you have the coolant system chemically flushed and refilled.

Indicator Light Indicate the Coolant Level is Low


either you have a hole in your coolant tank or the gasket in the radiator cap is bad or you have a small leak in your radiator or your car is getting hot those are the most common problems you can look for because it can be a lot more problems that can be add to this list but those here are the most common problems so look for one of this problem

Temperature/heat wont work/dashboard lights on and off


It sounds to me like you're low on coolant. When you checked the coolant level, did you actually open the radiator cap and make sure the radiator is full? The plastic tank you generally add coolant too is actually an 'overflow' or 'reserve' tank. There is a hose that runs from that tank to the top of the radiator so if the radiator gets low on coolant, more coolant -should- run in from the overflow tank. However in practice this does not always work. I have a Jeep that leaks coolant and experiences this exact same problem. Coolant will not run from the reserve tank into the radiator because the hose is plugged up, and whenever the radiator gets low on coolant the temp gauge will go real high and then drop, and the heater doesn't work well. This is because the cooling system of your car is supposed to be a closed system, full of coolant and no air. When coolant leaks out, the space it used to occupy is now occupied by air, which does not transfer heat well. When 'air' is passing through your cooling system, no heat can be transferred from your engine to the heater and radiator, resulting in a hot engine and no heat at the heater. Then when a pocket of water passes through the system, the temperature gauge quickly falls as the water absorbs the heat from the engine. The hot water that cools the engine is where the heater gets it's heat from as well, so when water passes through the heater core, the heater works, but when it's filled with air, it doesn't.
