ok i have an 89 turbo...all the way on the left side of the dash there is dash light that looks almost like a radiator. it was comming on and going off everyonce and a while but now it stays on at all times. I changed my coolant but its still on. anybody have an idea of why this is on.

thanks

the reservoir as in the over flow tank??
Yes sir. I make sure mine stays a bit higher than the "max" level. I don't think there is anything wrong with having more in there.

if it's overfilled it will just spit out what it doesn't need, not like it's gonna hurt anything (well, maybe if you're at the dragstrip...)

And make sure to grab some of the Toyota coolant if you can.

Mine does the same but I have a small hole in my radiator at the top. It bubbles everyonce in a while. And my overflow stays empty no matter how many times I fill it or how much I put in it. In just a few days it's empty again. And sometimes white smoke emits from the exhaust pipe. Any suggestions other than the obvious get a new radiator? Thanks Bill.
