ENGINE HOT/A/COFF

2008 Pontiac Torrent • 6 cylinder AWD Automatic • 75,000 miles

I have a 2008 pontiac torrent, my- EngineHot/A/C Off - came on and my temp gage on the dash fell down on cold instead of up on hot. Why? I checked all fluids and they were fine, did not smell hot.

I had the exact same issue this morning with my 2008 Torrent (87000 miles)! The remote start kicked off after running for about two minutes and then after driving about a mile, the check engine light came on with the "engine hot a/c off" message. Temp gage never moved from cold and when I got to work (about 30 miles) the engine fan continued to run after I shut the vehicle off. Could it need a new thermostat? I also checked fluids and they are fine
