The trouble code data is listed below. I would start by replacing the engine coolant thermostat, and checking the O2 sensor heater element for the sensor listed. (Front Sensor, Bank 2) Trouble Code Conditions: DTC P0115 not set, engine started, IAT sensor more than 14°F and ECT sensor from 14-149°F at engine startup, engine runtime over 10 minutes, and the PCM detected that the engine temperature did not reach at least 176°F under these conditions. Possible Causes: * Inspect for low coolant level * Inspect for incorrect coolant mixture * Check the operation of the thermostat (it may be stuck open) Trouble Code: P0138 2.4L L4 HO2S-12 (Bank 1 Sensor 2) Circuit High Input (Rich Shift) Trouble Code Conditions: Engine started, vehicle driven to a speed over 20 mph for 1 minute, IAT sensor from 14-122°F, fuel level over 25%, and the PCM detected the HO2S signal did not reach the maximum voltage level of 0.60v, or the signal remained at more than 600 mv in the test. Possible Causes: * Fuel pressure regulator leaking or fuel injectors leaking * HO2S may be contaminated or it has failed * HO2S heater is damaged or has failed * PCM has failed * TSB 01-016 (9/01) contains information related to this code
