I have just purchased a 1993 Pontiac Grand Am with 166,000 miles. Automatic and I have no idea what engine this is.I was driving my son and when I parked the car and returned the entire ground was full of antifreeze.I went to Auto Zone and they advised me that the cap to the antifreeze area was not secure therefore all the fluid boiled out.I replaced the fluid but the light inside that says fluid low is still on. How do I get this to go off. Do I need to go to a mecanic? Will the light go off in time? Please help.

First obviously check the fluid level. If it is full then the sensor has stuck in the low level position. The sensor has a float connected to it that can get stuck even when fluid is added. A couple of light but firm taps on the side of the plastic overflow tank will usually solve this by releasing the float to return to the top.
