Thread: Intermittent Coolant Level Problem

    Default Intermittent Coolant Level Problem

    I have a 91 525 with 75K miles. I get a “Check Coolant Level” indication when I switch off the car, but >only< when I have been driving over 65-70 mph. OK simple solution – obey the speed limit. Any thoughts short of this radical step?

    Default my car will....

    display a message if its overfilled or it isn't bled within an inch of its life.....i'd suggest bleeding it...mine only displays the message when i drive for more than an hour at highway speeds....think it might be time to replace the sensor, or try to clean it.

    Hey Ryan, I guess this means you survived the 500-mile drive, right?
    Either that or you broke down in front of an Internet Cafe....

    Default yeah...

    it went ok...after the coffee cup of water, i couldn't get it to reproduce that sound no matter what i tried...so i wiped off as much of the underside of the belt as i could get to, and picked up a dayco replacement at advance auto..gawdddd those people don't like to werk :^) i had to argue with the guy for 5 minutes to tell him that the belt listed under serpentine for my car was indeed a v belt sans the ac compressor...he kept saying that it was a dealer part..all in all, not bad for $22, not much worse than bma methinks.
