the coolant temp sensor is by far the most common fault.the only other thing it could be is the sensor in the coolant header tank.if you disconect the 2 pin sensor from where you top the coolant up and bridge out the 2 pins in the connector with a bit of wire.if this cures the fault you know its the coolant level sensor.if it persists and its straight from a cold start then the coolant temp sensor is the most likley cause.hope this helps.

that will the next thing.
make sure the water is restricted at any point, from the lower hose to the engine back to the upper hose and back to the radiator.
the best way to check that out is to flash the radiator. you can see the water change color and feel the engine temperture.

If it's a 2.0L, then the coolant sensor would be an easy fix. It's between the Air box / engine (on top of the coolant flange on the end of the head). If you do that, you probably should do a thermostat. Usually it's recommended to replace the thermostat when you do a coolant temp sensor, but that's up to you.
