Hi George/All,

Same thing happened to me on my 86 4kq. Well, at least until I looked more
closely. When cornering in a spirited manner, one is not usually staring at
the gauges.

In my case it was actually the coolant light. All I needed to do was add a
couple of drops to the overflow tank. It turned out that the tiny amount of
coolant I lost while changing the gauge sender was enough to trigger the
warning light in tight turns.
