      Need to know the specific fault code light (check engine light). There may be a specific issue that the dealership has corrected / repaired with this vehicle.

      Nevertheless - it is a warning, and if it were me - I'd buy a different vehicle altogether - avoiding the one with the check engine light issues.

      Josh, there is no substitute for putting the car up on plastic Rhino Ramps and looking to see where the coolant is coming from. Maybe after you have a better idea of the general area of the coolant flow we can help you further.

      The check engine light is located on the dash and stays on if the computerized engine control system detects an engine performance or emissions problem.

      First step - have the stored fault codes or check engine light scanned - for free - at any local auto parts store; Advance Auto, Auto Zone, NAPA, etc. Then, post a reply as 'add answer' with the specific code for more assistance. There may be a fault code stored in the OBD memory which may not be displayed as a check engine light. There are literally hundreds of possible fault codes and therefore numerous reasons for the MIL condition.

      This step is important - retrieving the stored fault code and relaying this detail - will provide good information to assist in diagnosing and repairing the issue you are having.

    My check light is on
    I was to my mechanic he reset check light but it comes on again and is no problem with the car. The code is P1479 something for vacuum break but is nothing wrong with them

      If the code is present there is something wrong. You do have a vacuum leak for sure and if you cannot find it then have a smoke test done to locate the vacuum leak. The first place to look is the vacuum supply line that goes to the brake booster.

      P1479 code Intermittent Brake Booster vacuum, are the brakes working good? It shows it would be a mechanical failure, or could be a small vacuum leak, inspect it.

    What could cause a big temperature drop while idling, and hot air from the heater when the car is moving?
    There is a very slow coolant leak, although the system holds pressure (tested twice by different shops). Related to the heat problem? No one can tell where the system is losing coolant from. Thanks.

      The engine oil pressure switch would operate either an indicator light or gauge - or both - depending how the circuit is configured.

      There is a parasitic draw on this car. Temporarily you could disconnect the negative battery cable each time you park it for the night until someone determines the cause for the draw and fixes it. Try removing the radio fuse and see if it fixes it.
