heard something before about the temp sensor being bad could cause this. i think theres 2 of them. may even be called coolant temp sensor.

Since you the check engine light has come on, that code will be stored in the ECM go to auto zone and have the car read for free. This will narrow your problem down.

Thanks for your help. I will replace the temp sensors. I retrieved the codes. See above. Thanks again.
