Our platform gauges are terrible. Watch the real temperature with a scanner. Clean your throttle body also.

PO172 means that an oxygen sensor in bank 1 detected a rich condition (too little oxygen in the exhaust). I would replace the thermostat first. The computer could be injecting too much fuel because it thinks it never gets to operating temperature. That may keep the light off.

I think your on the right track. I don't recall if this vehicle has electric or belt driven cooling fans, but if electric (and it's real cold where you are located), make sure they are shutting down when they should.

What are the probable causes of DTC PO128?


P0128- Coolant Temp below Thermostat. Sounds like the thermostat is stuck open. Do you get heat from the heater when the car is at operating temp. if not I would start there. Hope this helps.

P0128 came back after replacing t-stat


code p 128 refers to coolant thermostat---coolant temp below thermostat regulating temperature ====causes --mechanical fault
you say that you have replaced the thermostat and it is just under 210 F which is 99 c or almost boiling point
you will have to investigate why it is running so hot.
check that you put the thermostat in correctly ( bulb section to block/head water
Next point --the codes are originated by the coolant temperature sensor ( puts the fans on and sets the ECM fuel/air ratio for the engine ) so to get it off you will need to reset with a scan tool

Check engine light on, diagnostic code 0128 and 0410 keep coming up


P0128 - Coolant Thermostat (Coolant Temperature Below Thermostat Regulating Temperature)

P0410 - Secondary Air Injection System Malfunction
(has to do with exhaust system)

Note: There is a technical service bulletin (TSB) regarding code P0410 for a number of GM models. The TSB calls for the replacement of the AIR pump and the installation of a new secondary injection hose.

P0410 Secondary air injection system fault, P0128 Coolant temp


most ecu controlled vehicles have a 'limp home'mode if 2 or more fault codes are stored,it is designed to get your attention before damage is caused and to get you to the nearest w.shop to fix,i would have codes cleared and retest vehicle,it is the cheapest and 1st option for any shop,some late models even have excessive mileage past service interval in the 'limp' program

I drive about 260 miles a day. my 1999 dodge truck has been running about 210-230 degrees. i drive about 70 mph. if i slow to 55-60 the temp stays 210.


seems high to me. summer thermostats open at 185 , winter thermostats open at 195. At highway speeds , there should be more than enough air flow through the radiator to keep engine in the normal range. Your radiator might be pluged up and cooling poorly , but I suspect your temp guage might be inacurate.
