Miata coolants leak on the highway, feds say
A Michigan man’s complaint alleges a leak of a coolant regulator that is believed to be causing problems for thousands of people in the Midwest.
According to a statement from the U.S. Department of Transportation, the Miata Coolant Reroute is the most commonly used coolant level sensors in the United States.
The MiataCoolant Relegation, a new system that uses sensors to send alerts about coolant levels, is being tested on thousands of vehicles in several U.A.E. states and in several parts of the world.
The agency said it will issue the first reports of the malfunctioning system, and that it will fix the issue in the near future.
The Coolant Level Sensor, which sends alerts to the vehicle’s owner, can be found on the back of the engine bay of most Miata cars.
It is installed under the radiator in order to measure the coolant temperature and to monitor engine health.
The company behind the CoolantReroute, Tappex, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
In a statement, Tippex said the company is “reviewing the complaint and will respond as soon as we can.”
