View Full Version : Coolant related question...

03-31-2006, 01:22 AM
Starting to get desperate...the flashing red coolant sign hasnt gone away yet.

I checked all plugs, everything is fine. It did not come on until I finished an oil change and was moving the coolant tank alot.

Wheres the best place to grab an extra sensor for an 01 1.8t? Near the firewall on the driverside, there is a blue and green plug, as well as a brown one towards the middle. I want to be replacing the green one, correct?

Also, am I harming my engine by driving on this light?

Thanks in advance...

Dealer should have them. If not I have a green one if you are going to be up my way.

Ah, so it is a green one.

Is this def. the source of the problem? My coolant level is right in between low and max...

check the sensor plug underneath the coolant reservoir.....I did the same thing a while back. As long as you're not losing coolant, you'll be okay.

Yeah there is no leaking coolant, I think I just might have slightly unconnected a sensor...
