So I got the part and just went to fix it, but you people must have little bitty monkey hands, because I can't get my hand in...

    I posted the following in a different thread earlier today and it was suggested that I start another thread dealing with the acutal codes so here it is. I finally got a chance to swing by a local autoparts store and these are the codes I got from them: P0118 Engine Coolant Temperature...

    Hi - I got the above code on the check engine light (Passat V6 4M 2001.5 60K miles) this morning. The car is running a bit too hot too, above 190 degrees, but then it goes back to 190 after a while. I read in the forum that this could be either Thermostat or the temperature sensor? What are...

In addition, AutoZone couldn't reset the code after detecting it to...
