p1285 code Cylinder head over temperature sensed
my car (2002 mustang) recently overheated (first time, i was stuck in traffic on freeway)
service engine soon light came on
isn't overheating now
Year: 2002Make: FordModel: MustanyEngine: 3.8
Ok i would suggest checking the thermostat for proper operation as well as make sure the cooling fans operate you can verify the fans operation by turning the engine on and turning on the airconditioning the fans should operate then. The code will need to be cleared. Thanks if you need more info let me know.
