1) Engine overheated as I left PEP Boys because the water pump belt they installed came off. Now I have a related 1258 code. What needs to be done. Belt was replaced- not overheating now. 2) Code 1406 - failed EGR. Where is it on this engine?

 

1) 1258.......
>>> CLICK HERE

Try clearing the Code first
Replace ECT, if you are "sure" it is no longer overheating

The Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) Sensor is located on the Left hand rear corner of the engine, below the exhaust gas recirculation valve (egr)
