'twould make sense. The cold fluid is too low according to the level sensor,
gets just high enough after the warm up to turn off the sensor. So the easy
check, go check the radiator coolant overlow tank.
I just didn't recall that the temp light sensor would flash like this, I
thought it might be steady. My bad.
