Since it's summer, you won't get a P0128 with a wide open or missing thermostat but in the winter, you would have gotten this trouble code. During my clogged HG odeal, I was using a 180F thermostat with the jiggle valve removed (about a 1/8" hole) and one cold morning I got a P0128 code thrown at me about 5 minutes into a drive. The P0128 is a hit-and-miss code that is very climate dependent.

It was technically winter when the troubles started but in CA this year it was very warm in winter and downright hot in early spring. And my troubles rarely give me codes so I'm getting used to having to play detective!
