How to tell if your water is running low on coolant
The next time you need a refill, look up the coolant temp gauges on the pump and filter.
If it’s below 60 degrees F and there’s no other coolant in the tank, it’s running low.
If the temperature gauge says you’re running a full tank, and there isn’t enough coolant, it may be the cause of your water leak.
If your coolant gauge says that the tank is at 100 degrees F, but you’re still seeing the low temp on the gauge, the coolerant temp is probably not working.
In that case, you may need to fill the tank and wait to see if the tank cools to 70 degrees F again.
If you’re seeing the lowest temperature on the temperature gauges, you’re probably in trouble.
The coolerant gauge should also be reading a coolant temperature of 70 degrees or higher.
If this is the case, the problem may be with a poorly designed pump or filter.
The easiest way to diagnose a water leak is to test the pump for leaks by opening it up and letting it sit for a few minutes.
You can also try putting the tank into the fridge and letting the cool water drain out.
That will give you a good idea of how much coolant the pump is using.
