The engine coolant fan can keep running after the engine is turned off in any car because the temperature gauge is in the radiator. As long as the radiator is still hot, the fan will keep running until the temperature gauge says it has cooled enough.

Why coolant leaks when engine is off but heat wont work when engine running?

The heat is not working because you are very low on coolant, probably because of the leak. Seems to me that it should leak worse when it is running, so I am going to assume you are talking about the coolant overflowing the reservoir, in which case goes back to you being low on coolant and the engine boiling the coolant.

How does the coolant reservoir work?

when the engine is running and coolant will become hot to its operating temperature,the cooling system is under pressure,coolant will overflow and goes to coolant reservoir.when the engine goes cold coolant will go back to the rediator.

Does low coolant level and no pressure in the overflow tank mean coolant is leaking into the engine in a 98 olds intrigue?

maybe not. check engine oil for color and quantity. if oil is white to grey, then there is coolant leaking into pressure might be caused by bad radiator cap.this will also allow coolant to escape

Does the gauge that tells you if your engine is running hot have a fuse or sensor?

Your engine coolant temperature gauge has a sensor ( there is also a engine coolant temperature sensor that is used for the computer / PCM )

Where the coolant sensor on a Mitsubishi Mirage 4g15 located?

This is located near the engine. It lets you know when the engine is getting too hot and the coolant is running low.

That means the engine is running HOT. Need to check the coolant level and check for coolant leaks.
