  • Q:

    1996 Chevy Cavalier 2.2 Liter
    How do you remove and replace this coolant level switch?
    I do not see any fasteners or seals on the switch.
    Is the switch manufactured into the plastic surge tank so can not actually be replaced as a separate item? Does the switch "press" fit into a dry "cavity" and not need contact coolant at all to operate.

      Kevin from AAP wants to sell a repair manual. According to Alldata this part is part of the surge tank/reservoir and is not serviced seperately.

    • A:

      If you loosen the overflow tank and move it so you can get to the wires just take off the connector and with a needle nose pliers y0u can remove the sensor and replace the sensor without buying a new tank. the sensor sits in a cavity in the overflow tank never touching the coolant.

      most low coolant sensors are either in the coolant tank or in tanks of the radiator near the top
