Exhaust Gas Recirculation System Is the main problem here. the other code P0118 may be a bad temprature sensor or your thermostate needs to be changed. Last it could be a weak water pump. 

So what is an EGR system and how does it work? EGR stands for Exhaust Gas Recirculation, and as its name implies, this system allows exhaust gasses from your car to be re-circulated into the engine, helping to reduce emissions. These systems are mostly comprised of the EGR valve, a DPFE (Delta Pressure Feedback EGR) sensor, hoses, a vacuum regulator, some vacuum lines, wiring, the computer and the exhaust tube leading to the valve itself. 
The car's wiring can be tested in the normal fashion by looking for broken and lose wire, and all vacuum lines can be checked easily for cracks, leaks and correct routing.
The last thing i would then check is the the EGR valve, EGR vacuum regulator and DPFE sensor (or similar flow sensor).
I hope this helps and good luck

The cooling fan must run or the car must be running into the wind to keep from cooking the engine. Physically turn the fan to see if it turns freely (cold engine). The computer reads coolant temperature and trips the fan relay on when normal temperature is reached. You need to read the control voltage at the relay to determine the problem. Possible bad temp sensor.

SOURCE: 2003 kia sorento problems :

For error code p0117: Check the coolant reservoir tank.When you first start up your car the engine and radiator are cut off from the coolant reservoir. As the engine heats up so does the coolant, the coolant expands. There is a one way valve that allows that expanding coolant to leave into the reservoir. So basically due to this the coolant tank begins to develop cracks in it, slowly leaking coolant fluid and leading to the engine not being able to cool itself/overheating. ---------------- For error p0306 problem:The problem is related to ignition cylinder injectors.Clean the ignition cylinder and check.If still the same problem then ignition cylinder needs to be replaced. ------------ For error b2500 the problem:-- The components of the supplemental restraint system consist of: Seatbelts; SRS Indicator light; Airbags; Impact sensors.This all has to be checked.------------------- Thanks. keep updated for any more can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Which one is the ect sensor on my 2002 ford ranger, 4.0 v6 4x4, and how do I replace it

P0117 - Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) Circuit Low Input Indicates the sensor signal is less than Self-Test minimum. The ECT sensor minimum is 0.2 volts or 121°C (250°F). Note on some vehicles that are not equipped with an ECT sensor, CHT can be used and can set this DTC.
  • Grounded circuit in harness
  • Damaged sensor
  • Improper harness connection
  • Damaged PCM
ECT V PID reading less than 0.2 volts with key ON and engine OFF or during any engine operating mode indicates a hard fault.

Code active, unplug coolant sensor dash gauge stops reading

What make vehicle ? some vehicles have two coolant sensors . One for temp. gauge an another one for the ECM / PCM input. Do you have a check engine light lit ?

A DTC will be set if an abnormal reading occurs, P0116 for sensor performance, P0117 low input or

P0118 for a high input. The coolant temperature sensor temperature reading should closely match the

air charge/manifold temperature reading on a scan tool if the engine has not been run for over an hour.
The sensor circuit can be checked for proper voltage using a voltmeter.

2001 300m overheating and leaking water got code po117

P0117 Engine Coolant Temperature Circuit Low Input,,,Code P0117 indicates a low voltage input from the Coolant Temperature Sensor to the PCM. don't assume that the sensor is bad in this case, often it can be as simple as Rusty and/or corroded Engine Coolant, also check the connections to be sure they are tight, if these check out, then and only then,, you'll have to change the sensor

My friends car came up with this code and p0117 and he says when he accelerates it feels like its holding back

The P0117 code would not effect the acceleration of the vehicle. Probably just need a good tune up unless there are other codes showing in the system.

P0117 - Engine Coolant Temperature Circuit Low Input. The engine coolant temperature sensor is used to detect the engine coolant temperature. The sensor modifies a voltage signal from the ECM. The modified signal returns to the ECM as the engine coolant temperature input. The sensor uses a thermistor which is sensitive to the change in temperature. The electrical resistance of the thermistor decreases as temperature increases.

- Harness or connectors (The sensor circuit is open or shorted.)
- Engine coolant temperature sensor may be faulty
- Low engine coolant level.

- Replaced coolant temperature sensor
- Repair connector or harness

I have a 96 eclipse and the check engine and battery light are on, the code it throws is p1493 and p0117 what is wrong with it?

P1493 Battery Temp. Sensor, Low Voltage
P0117 ECT Sensor, Low voltage

Make sure the engine is reaching operating temperature, U may have a problem w/the thermostat, this is code P0117

Have the battery and the Alternator tested for possiable charging system issue, this is code P1493
