It seems that there are problems with the cylinder head or the thermostat. In the conditions described by you, if he radiator is hot, you must verify the cylinder head. If not, than the thermostat doesn't work.

A code P0128 may mean that one or more of the following has happened: Low engine coolant level Leaking or stuck open thermostat Faulty cooling fan (running too much) Faulty coolant temperature (ECT) sensor Faulty intake air temperature (IAT) sensor Possible Solutions Past experience indicates that the most likely solution is to replace the thermostat. However here are some suggestions on troubleshooting and repairing a P0128 OBD-II code: Verify coolant strength & level Verify proper cooling fan operation (check if it's running more than it should). Replace if necessary. Verify proper engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor operation, replace if necessary. Verify proper intake air temperature (IAT) sensor operation, replace if necessary. If the above items check out good, replace the thermostat

Warning light above temperature guagee is flashing


When the engine is cold, I would check the anti-freeze level in the plastic bottle on the left in the picture below. Also check to see if your cooling fan is coming on.0ff55ab.jpg

What does code: PO128 mean? I plugged it into the diagnostic machine, and that's the code that popped up.


A code P0128 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • Low engine coolant level
  • Leaking or stuck open thermostat
  • Faulty cooling fan (running too much)
  • Faulty coolant temperature (ECT) sensor
  • Faulty intake air temperature (IAT) sensor
The most common cause is a faulty thermostat. However here are some suggestions on troubleshooting and repairing:
  • Verify coolant strength & level
  • Verify proper cooling fan operation (check if it's running more than it should). Replace if necessary.
  • Verify proper engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor operation, replace if necessary.
  • Verify proper intake air temperature (IAT) sensor operation, replace if necessary.
  • If the above items check out good, replace the thermostat

BMW 325ci - Car cuts off on very hot days - Error code P00128


Check the following :

BMW Code PO128
This means that the engine's PCM detected that the engine has not reached the required temperature level within a specified amount of time after starting the engine. The intent of the P0128 code is to indicate a faulty thermostat. Similar codes: P0125
In determining the engine did not reach a "normal" temperature, it takes into account the length of time the vehicle has been running, the intake air temperature (IAT) sensor reading, the engine coolant

temperature (ECT) sensor reading, and the speed of the vehicle.

You will likely not notice any drivability problems other than the MIL illumination.

2001 pontiac montana heater is now blowing cold


You need to check coolant level in rad, when cooled down, and top up your return bottle to marked level.
Start by having coolant (antifreeze) ready, remove your rad cap, and top up the rad level, then start the vehicle, and turn on your heater (not defrost) . Let it run with cap off for a while, and keep an eye on level of the rad & top up as necessary, but leave an inch or so from top.Let it run & observe your guage while doing so, and when gauge gets to normal operating temperature, your rad fan should come on, run for a while then shut off for a while, then back on again after little while, and off again. Let it do this about 3 times, top off the rad as described above, put cap back on tight, and top up your coolant return bottle to mark on side. If your rad fan doesn't come on around normal operating temperature, and gauge heads too much towards hot reading, shut vehicle off, that's an indication that your rad fan fuse has blown, or relay, or fan itself is defective. If all works well & you now have heat, great, but keep an eye on your coolant return bottle level for next while to see if it keeps going down, and add as needed if it is. If the level in bottle continues to go down, you've got a leak in the system somewhere & need to address it a.s.a. p. to hopefully avoid bigger problems, but we'll get to that only if we need to. Do what's up above and let us know the results.
