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.

The service engine light you refer to is telling you you have a problem with the computerrized engine control of the car.When the light comes the computer stores a numerical code that can be retrieved with a scan tool or code reader.If you are not experienced with diagnostics you need to take the car to a mechanic,because sometimes a code can fool you and you can change a good part.An example of this would be reading a code that the oxygen sensor is reading a lean condition setting the light on. but the real issue is a bad fuel pump not supplying enough fuel to the engine. On the code alone you would be inclined to change the sensor when it was not the problem.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: GMC Envoy w/ code P0128
Start at $89 right off the bat just for diagnostics and then depending on what they find that is causing that fault, at LEAST one hour labor, plus parts....I would say $250 is a good ballpark figure....looking up your fault code now.
