Guys I went to a shop to get a quoted for a thermostat change, since my car got the engine light on and got the code:
P0128 engine temperature below...

they quoted me at $180so I left and came home and google it. I found out it’s something simple but I can’t seem to find mine.

I’m pretty sure I found it but ain’t 100% sure and don’t want to unplug something that ain’t the thermostat.

would any kinda soul help me find it ? Here are the pics ;

  1. but isn’t that if the car is over heating?
    because mine isn’t, mine takes a long time to warm up
After you change it, you have to bleed. But personally, I wouldn't worry, you can see the bleeder in one of your pictures.
I'd check and see how everything else is on that 3.5, and maybe (if it has never been done) do the water pump, tensioner, and timing belt. It is a fairly involved job, but nothing too bad. The tensioner is the biggest battle actually (I am assuming it is like on the LH cars, I have done 2 of those, a 1996 LHS, and a 2000 Concord 3.2). You probably need to pull the damper to get the front covers off. And read up on it first, so you understand the timing marks.
