    Default Header Tank Sensor

    For the past week my header tank level warning light keeps coming on after 20 mins or so even though there is no water missing, my mechanic is fairly certain it's the sensor which I tend to agree with, but does anyone know where the sensor is or what the part number is or even a picture would be good.

    It will be the sensor, mine did the same thing. Let me see if I can find my old header tank with the sensor in it

    Sensor is visible on the pic you sent... The electrical connector just underneath. It twists a bit one way to remove it.

    I can't see any part numbers on the sensor. My new header tank came with the sensor in it so I hope it's not just a part that comes as a bundle with header tank.

    Are you sure nothing is leaking? The tank looks like it's had fluid or something dripping down it at some point. Check on the downpipe heatshield aswell since it looks to have some sort of yellow stuff on it below the shape of the header tank.

    Is it filled to the cold level when cold? The yellow tab, stupid design having a black bottle.

    Thanks for the help guys

    The two top hoses had become very soft and one was leaking, which is why you can see coolant over the tank, but both hoses have now been replaced.

    The tank is full which is why it likely to be the sensor that's at fault, although now I know where it is I will undo it, clean it and put it back and see if that solves the problem
