Check engine light came on, then temp of engine ticked all the way up. Once I started moving it moved back to a normal level. Once in the garage I popped the hood and noticed there was no coolant. I filled the coolant up, and drove with the a/c on and the check engine light was still on, however the temp never moved above the 50% mark. Any idea what it could be? I thought it might be a loose hose but wouldnt more coolant solve that problem?


You have to find the leak. The Check engine light is probably on for engine over temperature. You will need a scan tool to confirm. Look for a leaking waterpump or thermostat housing on those models. ... 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland

I live in chicago. Exactly a week ago I ran my toyota prius without warming it up. after about 20 minutes the check engine light came on. later i checked the fluids, oil & coolant. I did have to add some coolant to the resevior and the radiator. i used peak coolant, but mixed it with water before i put it in. the check engine light remained on. I consulted my 2003 prius repair manuel. i disconnected the small battery in the trunk, negative terminal 1st, and then reconnected it, opposite of how i

2006 Subaru Outback: all of a sudden, the cruis control kicked off, I had a ''check engine'' light, flashing ''sport'' light and flashing cruise light?? When I arrived home, I checked under the hood...oil level ok, transmission fluid level ok....I did notice that the coolant reserve reservoir was a bit low, but no temp problems..After I shut the ignition off, and restarted the engine....I still had the check engine light and flashing cruise control light

2007 Toyota Corolla, check engine light came on a few days ago. The engine sometimes revs when idling, accelerating from being stopped can be really jerky, and the temperature gauge has quickly gone up and down (up to about halfway). It's an intermittent problem - sometimes everything is just fine (but the check engine light is always on). I got a diagnostic done today, and the DTC reported were P0118 (Engine coolant temperature circuit high input) and P0125 (Insufficient coolant temperat

I smell coolant and I see a little in the front above the water pump..where would the coolant be leaking from. Also my check engine light keep coming on. Would this problem that I am having with the coolant leak cause my check engine light come on?


Typically a coolant light will not make the check engine light come on unless your overheating.In this case, check your hoses that are running above the area you located the water for cracks and leaks. If they are all good then you will ... 2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

2004 Crossfire just dies (rarely and randomly) when driving or sitting at a light. Check engine light is on; low coolant light is also on... intermittently. Had it checked at a shop; no codes were found and no other problems were found - a waste of money. Is the coolant sensor bad or dying? And if so, would that cause the car to shut down (it starts after sitting for several minutes)? Coolant is full and has not overheated.

The vehicle is a 2004 Volkswagen Passat wagon GLX with v6 engine and about 55,000 miles. The check engine light comes on and with a code reader it shows a code "PO 118 Mod 10. Engine coolant temp high input". My code reader tool has a reset function and I have erased the check engine light. It does fine for about a week or two and the same reading reapears. The engine operating temperature on the dash always reads in the normal operating range. What is the problem and is it serious?


You have a faulty sensor somewhere here.If you cleared the error and it came back then you need to check the resistance of the sensor with a meter.\015\012Temp sensor is on the tranny side of the head or in the top radiator hose where it has a ... 2002 Volkswagen Passat

The airbag light keeps coming on in the car and the airbag has never been deployed before. The check engine light also comes on from time to time, but does not stay on and no issues are apparent to me. I called the dealer and they wanted us to bring it in and charge $90 each to check for both problems, so $180 total. Any idea of a less costly method to check this? Thank You
