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
The powertrain control module (PCM) has the ability to disable 4 injectors during an engine over-temperature (overheating) conditoin. Engine is considered over-temperature whenever the engine coolant temperature reaches 268 F. This protection mode allows the PCM to alternate between groups of cylinders, thereby reducing coolant temperature. This is accomplished by disabling the fuel injectors. This DTC is set to show that an overheating condition was or is observed by the PCM and that the protection mode has been engaged.
You will need to inspect the cooling system to see what is causing your overheating issue. If the engine is not actually overheating, this code may be set due to a faulty engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor.
Hope this helps, also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

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
