    I put half coolant and half water into my car some days ago as it had none (although I cant see if Im putting in half and half) and when I started the engine temp showed that it was on the blue marker and as I drove, engine temp increased to the half way mark but again the coolant light went on after my 2nd drive, why?? it keeps coming on

    cheers

    when you fill a car up with coolant you need to release the bleed screw to let the air out.

    if the temperature if normal and its got plenty of coolant in id suggest you just ignore it or replace the sensor.
