I smelled burnt coolant when I stopped my car so I checked under the hood and found that my coolant reservoir was empty. It didn't take too much to fill the car with coolant again.
I checked a couple of days later and the coolant reservoir was empty again. I popped the filler cap and could see there was still coolant in there, so I filled the reservoir again.
I noticed at this point that my radiator fan isn't kicking in. I've stopped a couple times and popped the hood to check but the fan is doing nothing.
I checked the fuse (I switched it for the electric windows fuse) and that made no difference and the windows worked with the radiator fan fuse in.
What is the likely suspect? I've read that the Mirage doesn't have a radiator switch and is controlled elsewhere, but I don't know exactly how that works if that's the case.
I don't think it's the water pump because I'm getting hot air through my air vents (on one side anyway - I still have the gunked up heater matrix) so that tells me that the coolant is being circulated.
I haven't had an overheating light come on yet.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
