Coolant level warning in 33.2 Palazzo

I began driving the Palazzo the other day when I received a warning about the coolant level being low? I couldn't check much except the overflow tank but there was about two inches of fluid/water so continued to drive. I have to take it into a Freightliner dealer to have them perform a diagnostic. HAS any other Palazzo owner have the same issue?

How far below the 'Full' level was 2" of coolant in the tank? Before paying a mechanic, I'd fill to the 'Full' mark when cold and see if the light stays off. If you're loosing coolant after filling again, then a visit to Freightliner may be needed.

It may take 2or 3 times to fill I would let it run to operating temperature starting with the tank full. Let it cool off then refill the tank and then do it again.

I agree, especially if coolant has recently been changed or a hose replaced. It often takes a couple of fills before all the air is purged from the coolant passages. It just seemed premature to go to service center for a low coolant light.

Coolant level warning in 33.2 Palazzo

It came on after about 2 miles of driving and went off/reset. It came on again for a few minutes after about 200 miles. I checked all temps and all within the normal range during this time. I just filled reserve tank to top and plan to drive it later today.

I hose clamps on each end of my transmission cooler were both loose allowing a small leak. These fittings are just inside the rear bumper. Low and at the back of the motor. Easy to tighten.

Coolant level warning in 33.2 Palazzo

Ok, went out today and no warning signals came on. As I stated in earlier posts the coolant water overflow was down to about one inch and this alarm signaled that level was low. All clamps tight and I put about one gallon of water into overflow and no warning signal came on today.

Thanks to all who provided feedback on this issue/concern.

Stay safe
