    Yep, that is coolant level - You need to top up Anti-freeze is normally better than water unless you mix it correctly...

    Last thing you want is an alloy head melting

    Ah right of course i see the problem now...
    Remember that you should only top-up the coolant on a level surface, maybe if you put your car flat on the floor then the light may actually go out as the coolant may register correctly when level

    No you should not have to keep topping it up, have you noticed that your temperature gauge has been moving around a bit funny over the past couple of days/weeks?

    You need to top up the resiviour [spelling] between the min and max marks - I think they still exist, to be honest I have not 'as yet' looked under the bonnet properly

    Just keep an eye on the level over the next couple of days/weeks and see if it goes down, if yes, then you need to find the leak, easiest way of this is park the car up somewhere dry and leave it idleing wait for it to get hot a couple of times for the fan to cool it down and see if you have a drop of water?
