Default Re: changed ECTS now temp guage not woorking

P0117 - This DTC detects a continuous short to ground in the ECT signal circuit or the ECT sensor.

Could be youlgot a bad sensor, or a temp gauge sender (used in '95 and earlier models) which is just that, but can be installed as if it were an ECTS. Do you still have the make/part number of it?

Any other driveability symptoms beyond occasional hard starting?

When you say not starting, I presume you mean it would crank but not start.
