Well, here's the latest mystery with the wife's '06 Impala 3.9L........

Driving along when this message appears, "ENGINE HOT A/C/ OFF"

The engine was NOT overheating, and at the same time the Temperature Gauge dropped to "C"

Pressing the Check Mark on the DIC cleared the message, but the gauge stayed on "C"

Driving home, the temperature gauge returned to it's normal center position. This happened last week too.

I'm guessing Temp Sensor going bad... any ideas are welcome.

Thanks in advance.

Never mind... I fixed it. Replaced the engine coolant temp sensor and the thermostat. The inner gasket of the thermostat was pretty torn up, preventing it from closing.
