1996 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 Toyota Camry, 4 cylinders, 5S-FE, 2.2 Liter 2000 Camry. Friend informed me the car is running fine and not overheating. A code P0128 (Coolant Temperature below regulating temperature) may mean that one or more of the following has happened: -Low engine coolant level -Leaking or stuck open thermostat -Faulty cooling fan (running too much) -Bad Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor The information contained in this video is for general guidance, not responsible for any errors or injuries that you have done.

A P0128 is a code is an indication of a faulty thermostat or ECT (engine coolant temp sensor). The manufacture designs the engine to run at a specific operating temperature for the most efficient operation. The thermostat regulates the coolant between the engine and radiator. If the thermostat sticks open or is weak, the coolant does not get to desired temp level. If the thermostat sticks the the engine will overheat causing damage. We simply show a quick way to check proper thermostat operation.

A fully warmed up engine needs / uses less fuel... if the engine is not warming up correctly, the ECM will set a trouble code. You can check the thermostat by driving the vehicle and monitoring the engine temperature that the ECM "sees". If the temperature drops below 80/81c, then the thermostat is not staying closed long enough which will prevent the engine from reaching the correct operating temperature. http://fkh161.ca/
