Is this a guessing contest? Pull the code and see what that says. It could be anything. If it's getting hot, maybe you should check the coolant level.

Is that on the front of the driver side head? If so, it's probably the coolant temp sensor.

Do they not teach proper English and grammar in Kentucky?

Oh wait, it's Kentucky...why am I even questioning this?

That is really a more complex question than it would appear on the face.

Considering the topology of the state there are at least three distinct zones, heavily influenced by various states of inbreeding and genetic mutations In the Eastern part of the state, you have Hillbillies. Hillbillies is a hearty breed with ample inbreeding. An unhealthy portion of the hillbilly population is afflicted with black lung or pre-black lung disease. Most won't come out in the daylight cause the black coal dust makes it look like they have old time theatrical blackface paint on and they are sensitive to criticism.

Them Hillbillies tend to migrate to churches what handles snakes-the lord said take up the serpent . I'm figuring the Lord was having a good time with a bunch of Hillbillies when he told em that and never believed they'd actually do it. To wash the blackface off, Hillbillies brung a concoction from Ireland that is brewed up illegally in mountain hollows and occasionally in well disguised caves. They calls it white whiskey and sell it to people that don't live in the mountains. It is to the day the most effective way to sell your corn crop which normally goes for 25 cents a bushel. You can get up to 15 dollars a gallon for it.

After growin up in them hills many eastern Kentuckians hain't got naer a thumb or finger. Comes from choppin firewood drunk. Makes stump poker difficult and countin or vanced rithmetic pert damn near impossible. Bad luck bout it is many of em lost toes too so they can't even count to twenty.

Down in the lowland, they call it bluegrass, there is a bunch of folks that either was thrown out of the hills or carpetbagged down from Ohio. The Ohio folks is easy to spot, they sit around and tell everyone in harin distence how much better Ohio is than Kentucky. You can tell a true Kentuckian cause he r she is sittin there chewin redman terbacky thinking WTF is they doin down here if Ohio is so damned much better? Then of course if you look at the way they vote, you can understand. They smurfed up Ohio and came to live in Kentucky. Most lowlanders, drink the whiskey made and sold by Hillbillies. That turns their necks red so theys called rednecks. Them what don't drink white whiskey drinks water flushed from one source or the other up in the mountains. hits so bad they often put stink weed in it and call it mint *** Lips.

Out in Western Kentucky, theys more coal miners and hillbillies. They used to be a nice town called Paradise but Mr. Peabody's coal train done hauled it away.

I hope you folks appreciate my educational lecture on Kentucky. I honestly worked on it for days so as to avoid discussin what they does to sheep up there.

And by the way, proper English is Damned Yankee

Never mind

While I ain't from Kentuck, I was born nearby in West (by God) Virginny. I reckon WRP and me might have some of the same kinfolk.

FWIW when I installed my headers way back when I broke off that sensor. My car ran fine for the couple of days until I got a new one and in fact my temp gauge still read correctly . There must be another one somewhere.
