coolant level low light was on when i picked up car today,
also check engine light. both of which i knew about prior to buying it

could this be the same problem?

any problems with ACDelco sensors? there only $40, however on my jeep a used a few BWD sensors and they keep coming apart on me so just making sure if anyone has had problems with this sensor

1994-2001 Pontiac Firebird Coolant Level Sensor - Cooling System - AC Delco 94-01 Firebird Coolant Level Sensor - 4671-05005357 - PartsGeek

car runs great though, just alittle rich, and radiator needs to be replaced
still the car was $1k with gears in box, cat back exhatust and cai

it will run rich with the check engine light on for safety. they are unrelated. coolant light doesnt affect check engine light

get your car scanned to find out why the check engine light is on

dont replace the coolant sensor, it's useless. just unplug the connector to shut the light off.

FYI... My low coolant light was the way I knew I had a blown headgasket.. air leaking into coolant and the way the bubbles rise in the radiator they get stuck in the sensor area.. just My experience. If that's what you got going on and you unplug and forget about it, you may regret it.

that's a good point, and the coolant res not being clear on these cars really sucks.

on most cars you can look at it, see a bunch of bubbles, and say oh crap my head gasket is blown. not so much on an lt1.
