Symptoms: P0128:07 stored in ECM, Coolant thermostat (coolant temperature below thermostat regulating temperature) mechanical failure. Vehicle taking too long to warm up, poor heat from vents.
Step 1. Performed health check: P0128:07, and P0128 stored.
Step 2. I verified the temperature at the thermostat inlet matches the coolant temp data PID. This indicated that the thermostat was stuck open. Specifications on opening temperature are 176-183*F
Parts: Engine Coolant Thermostat / Water Inlet Assembly (Quantity: 1)
Replaced the thermostat; it was stuck open all the time, causing excessive warm-up time.
