Its a code for engine temp. From the PCM. Start by changing thermostat and go from there. Could be that, a water pump, low coolant, or a faulty sensor. Start with the cheapest easiest thing first and work Ur way up. Check level and thermostat first.

DTC P1258: Engine Coolant Over temperature - Protection Mode Active
Have it check

I have a 2002 chevy tahoe 4X4 with a 5.3L that has set a P1258 code engine over temp, it has also set a P0117 ect low input code, and a P1637 L terminal circuit, P1638 F terminal circuit codes.


If these codes are being only set during start I would expect a failure of the battery. If the voltage goes much below 9 VDC the computers (EMS) can become erratic and codes and limp home modes are a common result of defective and discharged batteries!



Careful having the battery tested. Any arcing etc at the battery can be the kiss of death for the engine computer. Better to remove terminal to check. Or test the crank voltage with multi-meter.

I have 2000 cadillac deville and its overheating


P0741 - Torque converter clutch slip speed is exceeding limit; P1258 - High engine metal temperature. Sounds like you have transmission problems - torque converter problems can cause engine overloading, which in turn can cause the overheating. I would start with a complete transmission check before the engine is seriously damage the engine.

Check engine light, low engine power


You get a reduced power message ? Your vehicle has electronic throttle control or also known as drive by wire . Your gas pedal is electrically hooked to the PCM - engine computer . Has two position sensors inside as does the throttle body on the engine . Over time these position sensors wear an cause improper signals to the computer an the computer will put the vehicle into a limp mode . Most cases it will drive but only at about 20 mph . There are videos on youtube showing how this works , how to diagnose etc....
This P0449 is something different , has to do with the Evap. emissions .
DTC P0449 Evaporative Emission (EVAP) vent Solenoid Control Circuit . Planty of videos on youtube for GM trucks on this problem .
DTC P1516 Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) Module Throttle Actuator Position Performance
The predicted throttle position (TP) is compared to the actual throttle position. The two values should be within a calibrated range of each other. Both the powertrain control module (PCM) and the throttle actuator control (TAC) module redundantly monitor the predicted and actual throttle position. DTC P1516 sets if the PCM detects an out of range condition between the predicted and the actual throttle position.
Look's like you have three different problems , Thought p1516 an p1258 were going to point to same electronic throttle problem .

P1258
Engine Coolant Overtemperature - Protection Mode Active
PCM
DTC P1258

Circuit Description
The powertrain control module (PCM) uses the ECT sensor to monitor the engine for an over temperature condition. This condition occurs when the coolant temperature is above 132°C (270°F). When an over temperature condition is present, DTC P1258 will set. The PCM will disable two groups of four cylinders by turning OFF the fuel injectors. By switching between the 2 groups of cylinders, the PCM is able to reduce the temperature of the coolant.

Check the engine cooling fans for proper operation.
Are the engine cooling fans operative? Have you ever had the thermostat changed ? Is the coolant full ?

Check out youtube videos ! Just type your codes into the search bar .

I have a 1996 cadillac deville with codes PO741 and P1258 current. Tonight it shut down as I was driving, what could be the problem?


P0741....Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Performance or Stuck Off
P1258 Engine Coolant Overtemperature - Protection Mode Active
the first code is a generic code the latter code is a GM code and if this is correct the engine shut down because it was overheating for whatever reason or the sensor is faulty

P1258 CODE


Trouble Code: P1258 (4.6L V8 VIN 9 Auto)
Engine Metal Over-Temperature Protection
Number of Trips to Set Code: 1
OBD II Monitor Type: CCM Details
Indicators: MIL Details
Trouble Code Conditions:
DTC P0117, P0118 and P0125 not set, Engine started; and the PCM detected the ECT sensor indicated more than 270ºF for 10 seconds. The PCM uses the ECT sensor to detect if the engine is running too hot (when the ECT sensor is over 268ºF). If the engine is overheated, DTC P1258 will set. The PCM will disable 2 groups of four cylinders by turning off the fuel injectors. By switching between the two groups of cylinders, the PCM is able to reduce the temperature of the coolant and lower the temperature.

Possible Causes:
  • Engine cooling system problem (test the cooling fan operation)
  • Engine coolant level is low or the mixture is not correct
  • ECT sensor is out-of-calibration or "skewed"
