Unhappy OBD-II code PO-128?

...Coolant temp lower than thermostat temp.

had my service engine soon light on for some time now, finally got around to checking it out at autozone.

Guy said i need a coolant temp sensor, not a thermostat whats the diff. where is it located and how hard is it to replace? any help would be nmuch appreciated. SEARCHED, found nothing on this.

edit: ok i just searched on google and the code has to do with thermostat function??

does that guy not know what hes talking about, cause when i asked ok so i just need to change the thermostat, he says no its the coolant temp sensor, sounds like the same freakin thing to me

Before you go replacing things, look for the obvious. Check coolant level in the reservoir. Also check coolant level in radiator with engine cold. Do NOT attempt opening radiator cap on hot engine. If coolant level is low and there is no coolant reaching the sensor, the sensor will read a low temperature since it will not be submersed in the coolant.

+ 1. It is very rare for one of these thermostats to go. Even more rare for the sensor to go. It is possible, but really check things out first. The thermostat is right in the front of the engine - driver's side. It must be purchased with the housing ($ 70). It takes about 10 minutes to replace it.

Thanks for the help tough, much appreciated. Will check the coolant levels in the morning. Also this has been of for quite some time nowand and the coolant levels were fine before when the light was on, but ima check again!

T-stat = mechanical valve that opens at a pre-determined temp to regulate the flow of coolant though the motor.

Temp sensor = an electrical based device that measures the temp of the coolant and sends that info to the ecu and/or gauge. Ecu uses that info for various functions:
a) To determine if the engine is cold (cold start mode) or warm enough to go into closed loop operation.
b) If the temp gets too high, it might swap to a conserative ign map.

Is that a dealer price? I got a thermostat with housing and gasket for $20 at Checker Auto Parts. Same price at Autozone, but they didn't have in stock.
