The thermostat may fail to close completely, causing the Check Engine Light to illuminate. This problem will prevent the engine from reaching normal operating temperature; a new thermostat should be installed.

    I have the exact same issue. My thermostat only reaches a quarter of the way during high way driving and semi-normal during stop and go traffic.
