This came on last night (in the AU) and I wanted to check a few things regarding it...

1 - Do I need the car back at Ford to remove the warning light ?

2 - What can I check myself in regards to it ? I've checked the oil and radiator fluid levels and they are ok. What other things should I look for ? Blocked radiator hose ? Stuffed sensor somewhere ?

A further point I might add is that the light turned off once I filled the car up with fuel.... and no I wasn't looking at the fuel light by accident. I'm more than familiar with it thanks to the price of fuel.

I think I'll be getting the car in for a once over.

Only the idiot light.

I don't do that much work on my car and have only started buying tools recently.
