Engine light comes on. Mechanic states it's the thermostat and needs to be replaced.
Vehicle stuttered when entering highway. Would not shift into next gear at 3000 RPM. Took to mechanic, could not duplicate so ran and cleared code.
Check engine light came on next day for P0128. Have not had any overheating issues or shifting issues that I can sense.
Check engine light on and remote start doesn't work. Was told I need to replace the thermostat.
