2003 grand marquis trouble code po 128. Heater works. 100 mile trips no problem. Temp gage below C. New sensor or new thermostat?


Well code 128 is for a thermostat problem in the fact the engine is not reaching normal temp. If you have heat the engine is warming up but still may not be getting to normal range. Normal is 190 - 210 degrees.
I would replace the thermostat first and see what happens.

The check engine light came on it seems to run fine the only other thing i noticed is the temp gauge runs up to 210 then comes back down,it only does that right after you start it then its fine


Check engine light can be any number of reasons, dirty air filter, need oil change, or more serious engine trouble. The temp gage issue is normal, this is the computer resetting itself. My car the fuel gage and temp gage do this...don't be alarmed. Take it to Advance Auto Parts and they can run a free engine diagnostics test on it to see which error code is tripping your check engine light.

Sounds like a loose or burnt wire going from the transmission to the engine. Please try to remember who changed the oil last and ask them if they will look for a loose or burnt wire. The professional oil changers get in a hurry and might have hit an important wire to the transmission. How many miles would help answer the question more thoroughly.

Dash lights and gages


There is usually 2 fuse boxes 1 that is under the hood and 1 next to the drivers side kick panel. If not that check that all your computers are working by testing them with a tester from a auto parts place or someone that may have one that will let you borrow.

Check gauge light can come on for a number of different things, from Low fuel to low oil pressure to high engine temperatures. When the light comes on check all the gauge's and see whats causing it, one or more of the gauge's will be showing an issue, Low fuel or low oil pressure, Low battery power. Any of the mentioned things can cause it... Figure out whats causing it then you can remedy the situation...
