The coolant bottle is located under the hood, on the drivers side firewall. The fluid in the bottle is orange. When my light comes on, I alternate adding about a quart of distilled water to it, and a quart of dextron anti-freeze. One of these days I will actually replace the radiator. I am out of warranty, so it would have to come out of pocket.Anyone have any resolutions to this? Mine has been saying this lately. What should I do / check? I'd assume there is a cap somewhere near the front when I open the hood (as I'm in my living room and have no interest to go to the garage right now). Just add a little distilled water?
Exact same thing happened to me. Dealer replaced radiator, the very next day I started the car and got the low coolent warning again. I drove right back to the dealer, they looked it all over again. The coolent level was just slightly below the mark, they filled just a bit and the tech said "forgot to burp the system" and there was just enough of an air pocket to make the coolent level go down by a hair the next day. Not sure I believed them at the time, but it was about 6-7 months ago and I have not had a coolent warning since. I think if you did what Reed said, it should solve it as well. Just my $.02.after one day of driving with the new radiator, the low coolent level comes on dash...is this normal..just add some water?....it was a little low..:annoyed:
