First change out your Engine Coolant Temp sensor. That should cure it. If not post back. It's like a $15 part.

Will do sir. I'm not mechanically inclined but I love to do all my own work. I refuse to take it to a shop cause it is fun working on it. Just frustrating at times. I will let you know how it goes. Thank you! !

Sorry to bother but should I change my thermostat as well?

Not a bad call, can't hurt.

Thanks

Good morning. Temp sensor didn't fix it but know I know I have a good one plus thermostat. I replaced my ignition coil also and I noticed a big piece of the insulation was missing of the hot wire. It didn't appear to be grounding itself out on any metal but you can't see what happens after the hood shuts. I finished up about 1 am today is a new day let's see how she rolls. Thanks again.
