Hi .

Code P0128 - Coolant Temperature Below Thermostat Regulating Temperature, which means that the engine does not reach expected temperature (Operating temp)after running for sufficient time.

This is normally a stuck open thermostat or a weak thermostat that opens full when still cold .

In some cases I've seen that some cars had no thermostat what so ever..

With your P2181 which is a faulty thermostat temp sensor could be the reason due to the bad thermostat .

What i would do in this case would be to replace both Thermostat and Engine coolant temp sensor ..

For further assistance with this issue please get back to me with the reply box below .
This is not a one answer and done i will stay with you until the problem is sorted out .

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
