Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.Is the check engine light on?DO you have a scan tool or multimeter?Do you just want to know what it might be or do you want testing instructions. If you dont have a scan tool and/or multimeter for testing you may just want to try an engine coolant temperature sensor as that is the most likely problem.

Yes Wayne the check engine light is on. I can feel a shift in performance when the Temp meter drops while driving

Is it possible to run by an auto parts store and get the codes? That will help narrow it down and doesnt usually cost anything. If you have a smart phone you can let me know the codes while you are there and I can probably tell you what part to buy. That or I can offer an additional service to give you my number to text it to me.. thats a little easier but costs more.
