    Hi, "Coolant Level Low" SID came on yesterday, and foolishly I ignored it thinking I had time to look at at it later. Today, on way home, got stuck in the super-heavy traffic for which Reading is justly famed. After about 4 miles of continuous jam and stop-start driving the temp gauge is near...

    I have an 04 9-3 Arc with 73,000 miles on it that is slowly losing coolant. Its just enough to make the sensor warn me to refill it about every 300-400 miles. I took it to a shop today and they pressure tested it and said it is losing pressure but they cant find a leak. The mechanic said he's...

    Hi. I have a 1999 9 5 state with only 60k milles on it an in great shape. A couple of days ago got the "fill coolant fluid" message on the SID. Spotted the leak on the coolant bypass valve, and next time I tried to use the AC it wasn't cooling. I wonder if the leak could have something to do...
