Lite comes on after driving 1/4 mile. Now I'm afraid to drive it. 1) can I drive as is for about 3 miles to mechanic?
2) OR should I just have it towed to mechanic?
3) OR should I have tow truck fill it with antifreeze &
then drive it to mechanic myself? Thanks for help.

    be safe, cause overheat = blown head gasket = big $$$
    fill your coolant reservior up before driving...and pull over if it comes on and refill again.
