    I have an 03 Silverado and every once in a while i get a low coolant level light and then it goes away quickly. I am trying to diagnose the problem, any ideas?

    i have no idea, but that happened to me on my 01 once over the summer. I had just driven it 350km, and when i stopped, the light came on. I turned it off, started it again, and it was fine. My coolant level was fine, the only leak I had developed after that, and there was nothing else out of the ordinary. I took it to a mechanic that my aunt and uncle use (I was visiting them), and he could not find anything. It has not happened since for me, but I still have no idea what would have caused it.

    On my 2002 that happend to me and what had happened was that the coolent was right at the line and then when I was on a road that had a good "lean" to it the light came on. I pulled off to check it and ith level was good. Started the truck and the light went off. Got back on the road and the light came on. It was because of the drastic lean on the highway. I added a toch more coolant to it and that was the fix.

    Thats good that that was the fix for you. I was on a flat road, parked, and with the coolant well above the line. Mine might have just been some random glitch or something, too....

    EDITED - maybe i should quote the right post, instead of my own.:lol:
