    For past 2/3 months Ive been getting the coolant light on the dash but yet when I check the coolant its inbetween the min and max just under the max line, also recently when starting the engine a bit of white smoke comes out and rought idle for about 20 seconds. Anyone any ideas why the light keeps coming on?

    Thanks

    open the cap when cold and clean the prongs inside the header tank.Scrape them with a screwdriver, or your partners toothbrush ;)

    Like lee said most likely the lil prongs/sensor that is at fault.
