Check Engine Light on 2004 Envoy

Donny,

My check engine light goes on a off evey couple of days and I took it Auto Zone and code came up as a low coolent, bad coolent sensor, or bad thermostat. It seems that my thermostat may get stuck open. Could this damage my vehical? Should it be a immediate fix or could it wait until I have time? Any help would be greatly appreciated? Below you wrote:

That code represents a lower than expected reading for temperature (coolant). First thing to do is check your coolant level, as if it is low, then the sensor can not read correctly. Second, you may have a thermostat that is stuck open, allowing the coolant to cool off too much. The sensor should be mounted on top of the engine, near the thermostat housing.

    check engine light came and won't go off. The codes came back for thermastat housing, and coolant senor. Can you tell me where they are located on a 2004 Envoy SLT with a 4.2 liter engine.

    My 2004 Engine Light came on and the dealership told me I need a new termastat. Is this true. They also said it would cost about $350.00.

Yes this definatly can damage your vehicle, it can cause your head gaskets to blow, you engine to stop running, and some cases you will have no heat, replace the thermastate right away.

What does it mean when check engine light blinks


A flashing check engine light indicates a serious condition with the engine, and the car should not be driven far until that condition is repaired. You need to have the fault codes read to determine what the problem is. You can have this done at Auto Zone for free. If you continue to drive like this, you will destroy the catalytic converter.

do you fill the gas tank with the key on?

Try disconnecting the battery for 1/2 hour an then reconnect and drive for 10 miles. It may run rough for this period. This will clear codes from memory.

Coolant Temp Sensor


The sensor is located on the drivers side engine block...although you can see if from looking from the top of the engine, you would have to get under the vehicle and look up to replace it. Be aware that it takes a special tool to unscrew the old one and screw in the replacement.
