Question about 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier
What does your engine temperature gauge indicate? Is it on the low side even after the engine runs for a while? If the temp is always on the low side of the gauge, you probably have a thermostat that is stuck in the open position (or possibly someone removed it and did not replace it). If the above describes your engine temperature, and you change the thermostat, it should 'fix' the fault code and shut it off for good.

The engine, AND ENGINE COOLING FANS and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL THE DIAGNOSIS & TESTING IS COMPLETED.
