Customer: replied 10 months ago.
this code was pulled
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 10 months ago.

I dont show this s a valid code? are you sure on the code number?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
what about my temp going down then going up 190 seems to have a mind of its own
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 10 months ago.

that will be caused by abad thermostat in the engine, and it may be related to the code you got, but I would need the exact code number to tell you, did you pull the code your self? or did someone else do it?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
when code was pulled was told that it looked like a dummy code I just wanted to be sure. As for the temp I was thinking bad thermostat
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 10 months ago.

yes, the thermostat will be the cause of the heating issue, if the code was a P1Z96, then its a false code,Tim
