My Equinox had a message "Motor hot turn off A/C when I started it this morning after sitting in the garage all night. Any ideas?
Check your radiator coolant level.
I have done that. My husband checked it and it was down about one quart. He added water, which I understand is not a good deal. What now?
A quart of water isn't going to be a big problem. What needs to be done is find out why it was down. The radiator is a closed system, so the coolant went somewhere. The next step is to have a pressure test done.
Will it hurt to drive it 30 miles? I am that far from a repair shop.
No. Just keep an eye on the temperature gage. And NEVER EVER open the radiator cap where the engine is hot!
I have a 2009 and it show me the Engine hot Turn off A/C and in the dash the temp gage not working and also engine light come on but we did a reset and when away for 3 to 4 day and came back what could it be
need to replace thermostat, they have problems sticking , replace t/stat and refill radiator and bleed should be ok
