Question about 2002 Honda Accord
P0128 indicates that the car doesn't "think" it is warming up quickly enough. So either it really isn't getting warm enough, or the sensor indicating the temperature is bad. If it isn't getting warm enough the causes include a thermostat stuck open, low coolant, and a cooling fan that is running when it shouldn't be.

Keep in mind that many cars have two coolant temp sensors. One for the computer, and one for the temp gauge. Make sure you are working with the correct one.
