Flasing Coolant Light gauge to left

While driving my car today I had a red coolant light to the right of the gauge start flashing.  When I checked the gauge it was all the way to the left.  Coolant tank is full.  I read it may be a sensor or an engine compartment cooling fan.  How do I tell which one?  Is either a do it yourself fix?  No Dealer for 180 miles. New Boxster owner sorry.  Thanks in advance.  CJC

Radiator Cap

Model: Boxster S, Year:2003, Mileage:22,000, Type of use:Street use only
I Drive a 2003 Boxster S that has 22,000 miles on it. I have had the car for just over 1 year. Just after I got the car I noticed coolent on the trunk lid just above the Coolent Cap. I replased the cap 7 month ago and now the Coolent on the trunk lid is back. Shuld I try replacing the cap again?

coolant loss

Model: Boxster S, Year:2002, Mileage:72,000, Type of use:Both Street & Track
After topping up the coolant level to max. The next day on start up, I have a coolant smell at the rear of the car. I do not see any coolant in the oil or any oil in the coolant. There are no leaks or drips anywhere. I am loosing coolant somehow. After about a 2 hour drive I am loosing about an inch on the min max scale. The car did overheat when I had a thermostat / water pump replacement. The car runs great. Do you have any ideas?Thank you.

air conditioning

Model: BOXTER, Year:2005, Mileage:39000, Type of use:Street use only
With the heat wave we are having, the AC does not seem to be getting as cold as before. I checked the air temp at the center vent and the coldest it would read is 65. With outside temp at 101, should I expect the AC to blow colder?

cabin filter

Model: Boxster S, Year:2006, Mileage:10000, Type of use:Street use only
Where do I find the cabin air filter for a 2006 boxster S

VENT NOISE

Model: BOXSTER, Year:2002, Mileage:55000, Type of use:Street use only
I hear a noise under my dash coming out of my front AC vents and defroster vent that sound like a plastic fan blade rubbing against another piece of plastic. This noise is only when I am going above 40 MPH. This noise is constant when running 55 on the interstate and is very loud and annoying. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?David Eilereilerd@verizon.net
