Sitting in the driver's seat, facing forward, the white coolant tank is on your right side inner fender wall. At the bottom front of the tank, there's a connector attached. This connector is for that coolant level indicator on the dash. Unplug it to see if this turns off the indicator, if so, consider replacing the sensor that you just unplugged or just leave it unplugged if you know for sure the tank is filled with coolant by regularly checking the level. This is the low level indicator for the coolant liquid. The coolant tank is white and is locate on the left of the engine compartment. Fill it to the hot line if the engine is hot or to the cold line if the engine is cold. just filling the tank doesnt always fix that light problem. Try tapping the overflow tank lightly with a hammer to get the air bubble out and trip the sensor that will work

What does the low coolant light look like would the radiator fluid warning light stay on in a 1996 Cavalier?

On the dash the indicator light looks like a square box that looks like a radiator with a wavy line that looks like water and has an arrow pointing down telling you the radiator water is down. If the coolant reservoir is full, the float is stuck. Simply remove the 10mm screw that holds it down, lift it up with hoses attached and shake it until the light goes off. OR, you can check the float by getting a small wire, unplugging the float wire harness from the coolant reservoir and putting both ends of the little wire in the wire harness plug. If the light goes out... shake the coolant is stuck.

Where is the orifice filter located on a 1998 Chevy Cavalier?

I have a 1997 Chevy Cavalier 2.2 L and for me the orifice filter for AC is located down to the left of the radiator on the front of the car. If you look where your high pressure valve is just below that and to the left a little you will see two aluminum pipes (one coming from the top one from the bottom) and where they meet is where the orifice filter is housed, it looks sort of like a small aluminum rectangle. Just take the nuts off the housing for it and there you have it.

Where is the thermostat located on a 1997 Chevy Cavalier 2.4L?

Follow the hose coming out of the bottom of the radiator, it goes under the oil pan up under the exhaust manifold. I had that part out to get my oil pan off and it looks like thermostat up there. You need to take of the shield over the manifold to get at the bolts holding it on. I'm not sure if it is the thermostat but sure looks like one.

Find the top radiator hose and follow it from the radiator to the engine. The part that the radiator hose connects to is the thrermostat housing. It is usually held on by two bolts. Once you remove that the thermostat looks like a little flying saucer in there. Good luck.

What is the problem when light on dash stays on Symbol looks like fluid low but all fluids are full mean on 2000 Chevy Cavalier?

The fluids (such as washer fluid) have a float as part of the sensor so if the float sticks at the low position, it will read low and the light will stay on. Remove the caps and see if this is the problem. I hope this helps you. Mark
