Dealership forgot to put coolant cap back on

Asked by GuruXYBQ3 Oct 08, 2018 at 03:36 PM about the 2013 Hyundai Elantra GL Sedan FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I took my car in for  service recently
and as I was driving it home, the
coolant temperature light comes on. I
pull over immediately and call the
dealership. I notice at the front of the
car there is green fluid dripping out.
They sent a mechanic over and the
cap was off as it wasn't tightened
properly. He refilled it and I drove off
and my car seems ok. I didn't notice
anything out of the ordinary when I
was driving it before the light came
on, which was about an hour and the
car seems ok. Should I get the
dealership to inspect it to make sure?
What kind of damage could have
happened?

Thanks for answering. No, the coolant light hasn't come back on, which is good.

And the temperature which was maxed out when the light came on is within normal range
