Hi There, As you know, code P0128 relates to the operation of the thermostat in your cooling system, specifically indicating that the thermostat is likely stuck open, which results in the engine operating temperature never reaching the normal operating temperature it should be at. The good news is that this is less damaging than if it were the opposite in that your car would be overheating which could cause significantly more damage to the engine and other parts as well. I would suggest scheduling an appointment to have one of our qualified mechanics come to your location to replace your thermostat to get you back on the road as soon as possible.
