Not really, but its possible. Most likely its a coolant-level sensor (mine is dead as well). Dont worry, its about $16

actually it is a common place.. happens all the time.. there is an O-ring that is apart of that sensor... you unscrew the sensor... and replace the O-ring... should fix her up...

Good Luck,

Les

I still need to know where it's at, is it the O ring on the bottom sensor of the coolant tank or what?
