Trouble Code: P1258 (4.6L V8 VIN 9 Auto)
Engine Metal Over-Temperature Protection
Number of Trips to Set Code: 1
OBD II Monitor Type: CCM Details
Indicators: MIL Details
Trouble Code Conditions:
DTC P0117, P0118 and P0125 not set, Engine started; and the PCM detected the ECT sensor indicated more than 270ºF for 10 seconds. The PCM uses the ECT sensor to detect if the engine is running too hot (when the ECT sensor is over 268ºF). If the engine is overheated, DTC P1258 will set. The PCM will disable 2 groups of four cylinders by turning off the fuel injectors. By switching between the two groups of cylinders, the PCM is able to reduce the temperature of the coolant and lower the temperature.

Possible Causes:
  • Engine cooling system problem (test the cooling fan operation)
  • Engine coolant level is low or the mixture is not correct
  • ECT sensor is out-of-calibration or "skewed"

This is a hydraulic powered lift gate, and it is normal for these to be slow. If excessively slow it needs to be diagnosed by someone familiar with the normal operation of the lift platform. Ask a mechanic with hydraulic control experience to look at it. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REPAIR YOURSELF!

Bad thermostat. If it happens in city driving it might be the sensor that controls the radiator fan. Either way a simple fix.

Hire a lawyer. There is no reason to fear unless you were drinking prior to the sobriety tests. Bring proof of that medical condition to court from your doctor.

Take this to a repair facility. If you screw it up, the engine is finished.

Look for the fuse block.

It's probably inside the fuel tank where the fuel pump is.

Carefully. Place a jack under the tank and lower it after removing the bolts that hold it up in the frame. Once it is clear of the frame you can remove the filler neck and lower it to the ground. Remove the fuel pump/level indicator plate and siphon or pump the fuel into a fuel safe container,

Look at the Chilton guide for firing order under ignition system.

you need to check and see how much fluid is in the reservoir. I suspect it is low and this may be a sign that it is also overheating.

Have the filter in the transmission checked - they clog and then no fluid can move in the transmission, and the flow of the fluid is what makes gears shift.
