Hello, Just a stab...but those models are know for the coolant temp sensor causing a situation just as you describe. Have someone run a scanner, and see if the sensor starts with a low(cold) reading, and then gradually increases its voltage feedback. Now, that's a given that you don't have vacuum leaks, good tune, etc. Hope this Helps, AskTrannyman
