My check engine light comes on for low temperature.

Asked by Aug 22, 2016 at 06:57 PM about the 2005 Chevrolet Venture LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2005 Chevy Venture van. The check engine light comes on and says
the thermostat is bad. I have had thermostat replaced and coolant sensor
replaced. But still has the same problem. I had a local repair shop hook up
there Snap-on diagnostic tool and it showed that the computer was actually
seeing a tempature reading 186 degrees. I'm to the point I do not know what
to try now?

1 Answer

Also I forgot to tell you. That the temperature gauge usually around the half way mark. Now it is around the 3/8 mark.
