The coolant level sensor is bad. It is integrated into the coolant bottle, so you need to replace the coolant bottle.

Why do you add antifreeze to the coolant?

coolant is a mixture of antifreeze and water (usually 50/50) If you were to use just water, you would not have either freeze protection or overheat protection. Water freezes at 32 degrees. Antifreeze could protect engine to -20 to -30 degrees. Water (with no pressure) will boil at 212 degrees. Antifreeze will delay "boil-over" to a much higher temperature (I am not sure of number)

Why should you change your antifreeze?

With time and miles the additives in the coolant wear out and break down. The coolant then becomes corrosive and acidic. This starts to damage all metal parts, including radiator, engine, water pump, etc... The coolant will eventually turn into sludge and the car can overheat and ruin the engine.


Why does ford Focus 2003 zts overheat when the AC is turned on?

What happens if you put oil in your antifreeze?

Nothing if you drain it out and flush the cooling system. Oil is not a good coolant, and the water pump will have a hard time pumping it, so the vehicle will overheat if you do not remove the oil.
