This weekend on my drive to OC, My Low Coolant Light came on. I check the reservoir, and it was full. My Wife had recently put coolant in because there wasnt any coolant in the reservoir. I Figured ha, Maybe there is air in the system, ill need to bleed the air out.

So made it to OC, The Check Engine Light comes on. Let the car cool down some, came back to bleed the air and got nothin but coolant coming out of the bleeder screw. Started the car back up, check engine light was still on but the low coolant light wasnt. made it almost all the way home before the low coolant light came on again...

SO the following morning, went to the car, Reservior is still full of coolant. Decided to warm the car up a little bit, tried to bleed, got nothing but coolant again. Check engine light went away. i figured awesome, maybe i got all of the air out somehow...

Wife drives around, check engine light and low coolant light back on again. Are the two connected? I know I'm going to have to go to the local Autozone and get the code read, and from research replace the Low Coolant sensor, but what else COULD be wrong just for the sake of conversation before i get the code checked?

Anything we have to say is nothing but pure speculation until you get the code checked. Sure they could be related, but it could just as easily be something completely unrelated.

Ok cool.. Thanks Iffy for the quick response! ill get it checked and report back.

**UPdate**
Ok got the codes checked. Came back with P0404 & P1404 EGR Val codes. They are not related. So i have to get a new coolant sensor and The Egr Val got priced at $139.99 (Duralast). So now i will be doing some reading on how to replace these items (Coolant Sensor is easy..lol) Thanks Guys!
