I went to autozone and have a computer print out that reads: Troubleshooting P1296 Coolant Temp Censor, Definition- cooling system malfunction, Explanation- check coolant level, Problem cause- Check CTS and circut. I do not know much about this problem but, the car does not seem to be getting enough power. It seems as if it drags until it warms up completely. It makes a very loud fan noise while this is occurring. The rpms also rev very high while the car is not moving very fast.
