“What does the coolant light mean on my dash?”

If you notice a “coolant light” come on in your car, it could indicate a number of things but the most likely of all causes is your engine’s coolant level is beginning to run low, however, it’s best to have it checked out by a qualified technician. Even if it was simply that the coolant level was low due to normal consumption, it is very important to not attempt to top it off unless you are certain about what kind of coolant to use. In modern cars, many manufacturers have developed specific formulations to use in their cars and mixing coolant types can have disastrous consequences. What started as a low coolant level can then turn into a major, costly radiator repair or worse. Instead of taking that risk, bring your vehicle to us in these situations and we’ll be happy to top you off with the correct fluid for free.
