    Hello Hitop

    The fault sounds really like an engine temperature sensor fault and you say that you got a fault code P0118.

    P0118 – Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor Circuit – High Input

    In this case I would check the measurement/live data if I can see the temperature the coolant sensor is showing when hot.
    If you cant see it you could measure the ohm on the sensor, and then from ECU harness.
    Check the wirings.

    If it’s a GM sensor you could probably follow the ohm from this list.
