2012 Honda Civic LX 1.8L “Check emissions system” Light

Asked by Jul 18, 2019 at 08:22 PM about the 2012 Honda Civic LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

A few days ago I had a “Check emissions system”
light appear on my dashboard. I had a gut at
Autozone run the code, and there were 3 reading
“Faulty Thermostat”. I have driven my car a little
since and have not noticed any overheating. My
father indicated to try and replace the Coolant
temperature sensor instead of the thermostat to
see if that would work, since he has heard of a
couple incidents relating to this. I’m not sure which
one to do. Any thoughts, suggestions, or words of
advice would be very beneficial. Thank you.
