4KQ Intermittant Coolant Light Flash

 The following from Alex Rosser regarding his '86 4KQ:

>. . . A couple of times in the past day I've had the temp light come
>on(very briefly) under similiar circumstances. Both times happened
>while accelerating through a tight turn(once to the left, once to the
right). . . 

Alex, this one may be relatively painless to the wallet.  The sensor is
triggered by coolant level in the plastic overflow tank.  It sounds like you
are slightly low.  The combination of turn and acceleration agitates the
fluid enough to make the light flash briefly.
