Check the mileage and if it is close to 60.000miles or100.000 klms I suspect it may be a warning light telling you that the timing belt is due for a change.

    I have high mileage. I'm at almost 234,000. But when I bought the car I had a mechanic look at everything so that I wasn't buying a piece of poo. Said it would last me another few months.

    At 234.000 I would think that the belt is due for replacement again. Talk with you mechanic and go on his advice. Be cautios on this because if it is a belt time indicator then by ignoring it you will be looking at big dollars.

It sounds tempature related I would check the engine coolant tempature sensor Its going to be near the upper radiator hose where it attaches to the engine block a false reading from this sensor could screw up other systems abiblty to give correct readings to the vehicle control system and cause a lot of unasual unrelated problems to acure If you can i would seggest that you take it to an auto parts store most will read the codes for free although you have what is called an OBD 1 SYSTEM on board dianostic system OBD 11 is the newer system its likely a sensor and you will likely be able to fix it for under 50 dollars mabey 20 Good luck with it

possibly the pump has packed up.if you still have brakes and they appear to work ok evan without power assistance then remove the bulb and hope its not picked up on the annual mechanical inspection when they do a brake test,other than that it will be fine and should save you being the golden egg layer.
