Orange or yellow dashboard lights remind you that something needs to be serviced soon, like an oil change, or that something is wrong with your emissions system. While not an emergency, you should have a repair person look at the problem as soon as possible.
What does blue light on dash mean?
Can I drive with blue coolant light?
This BLUE illuminated light turns off when the engine is warmed up sufficiently. The blue light will stay on until the engine has reached optimal operational temperature. While you can still drive the vehicle safely with this light on, it is best to wait until the blue light has turned off.
How do I know if my coolant is low?
One tell-tale sign of low coolant is the high-temperature gauge on the dashboard. This gauge is designed to tell you when the engine is getting too hot. Most often, the gauge should stay near the center of the H and C symbols.
Why is my car losing coolant but not overheating?
If you’re leaking antifreeze but not overheating or you have a car leaking antifreeze when parked, you still have a chance to repair your vehicle for a lower cost. Chances are you have either a radiator cap leak, internal coolant leak or an external coolant leak.
Why is my antifreeze disappearing?
Disappearing engine coolant could be the result of a slightly cracked hose, a tiny hole in your radiator, or a water pump issue. It’s also possible for a coolant leak to develop inside your vehicle or to simply vaporize into mist via your defroster. Check the underside of your radiator for dampness as well.
What does it mean when your coolant keeps running out?
This can be caused by a number of things such as low coolant levels, a faulty thermostat, a clogged radiator or a failing coolant fan switch. In addition to leaking around the pump, you may have a leak elsewhere in the cooling system coming from one of the hoses going to or from the radiator.
How often should you top up coolant?
You need to check your engine coolant at least twice a year before summer and winter, ideally. Although, this advice may vary between car manufacturers. Coolant should be topped up whenever the level drops below the guide marks.
