Temperature Warning Light
Posted 11 August 2012 - 04:07 PM
I was just wondering if anyone could help me please. My temperate light has started coming on my dash on my street ka. Its not flashing it's a steady red and kicks in about ten mins into the journey
Ive checked the oil and it was a bit low but not majority and topped that up, I've topped my water up and still it's turning on. I'm not too sure whether it's because I top my rad up with water not coolant could this be a reason for it? If so does anyone know if it's quite easy to drain to put coolant in or is it worth a trip to a garage!
Alternatively does anyone know any good garages in the Manchester area who won't be too judgemental of a girl and her ka and charge the earth!
Any help would be much appreciated

Could also be a faulty thermostat or blocked radiator amongst other more serious things

Get a garage to test your mixture with a hydrometer and add coolant to balance it up.
The last thing you want is the engine to overheat and seize up. (big expense for the cost of a bottle of coolant).
You'll probably find most garages will happily check your coolant for very little cost, if not for free.
