p0117 code and engine problems
just starting today on startup the engine revved to 2000rpm for 5-10 seconds (this is not mornal, engine has never gone that high on startup) and during the drive home i notice engine is in limp mode (cannot rev past 4K)
no CEL either
last time this happened it was a bad MAF and dealer replaced at a cost of
$1000 (dealer is notorious for ripping customers off) so i am not wanting to go back to dealer
so i plug in duramtetrics and it gives me code P0117 which is coolant temp sensor. however, my gauge shows coolant as normal (in the middle temp, not far left) , actual values shows -40c temp for coolant?
any ideas? should i try order a new sensor and try replacing it myself? i read somewhere it's under the car and hard to get to? any thoughts other than "take it to the dealer" would be appreciated.
