    DTC P1258 - engine coolant temperature is more than 131°C (268°F). When the engine is overheated, DTC P1258 will set. The PCM will disable two groups of four cylinders by turning OFF the fuel injectors. By switching between the two groups of cylinders, the PCM is able to reduce the temperature of the coolant.
    Have you reset the code and if so, did it come back on?
