It sounds to me like the radiator is boiling.Make sure the radiator is full by removing the cap WHEN THE ENGINE IS COLD. and filling it completely. This should fix it. GoodluckJoe

Because the coolant is starting to age and is picking up contaminants.This is normal, BUT, you want to ensure the coolant is replaced before too much longer.I rather change coolant too soon / early than too late.

Why does 2000 Chevy Venture check coolant level message flash when level is OK?

If you are checking the coolant level at the overflow bottle, it may look normal (between the low & high marks). But the coolant level sensor is mounted on the passenger side of the radiator, down several inches from the top. In other words, you need to check the coolant level AT the radiator cap, but only when the engine is COLD. If it is OK at that point and the overflow bottle, then the coolant level sensor most likely needs to be replaced.

Where is water added in a 1994 Honda Shadow 600 motorcycle?

The radiator cap is on the right hand side of the motorcycle, just behind the plastic shield trim in front of the gas tank. There is also a coolant overfow bottle on the right side of the motorcycle, behind the removable plastic panel there close to the rear. Coolant can be added there as well, by removing the rubber cap of the filler or bottle neck. Usually coolant is added at both the radiator cap and the coolant bottle. Don´t worry if you fill too much coolant since it will automatically drain itself out via an overflow hose as the engine gets to normal working temperature.

Why is low coolant warning light is on when the coolant level is normal on a 2002 Ford Taurus?

It has one. Sometimes they get stuck on even after you add coolant. Tap on the reservoir until the light goes off. Or you could always unplug the connector at the bottle and the light will go off. That's at your own risk of course because you won't know when you're low on coolant.
