Engine light comes on and sensor says engine coolant over temperature. The sensor was changed thinking that it was a defect but that wasn't it. There's no signs of car running hot the temperature gauge needle stays in the middle and doesn't move towards hot. So what is it cause mechanics been trying to figure out for over a week now

It sounds like it could be a blown head gasket causing the engine to run hot. Here is a guide that will help you confirm the problem

Okay, I did the test and the head gasket is blown, I will have it repaired becasue I don't want to do the job myself. Great work you guys do here on this site. I love it :)

I wonder why the other mechanics couldn't find the problem?

I'm getting it too. The codes are P0301, P0303, and P0304. The computer said to change the EVAP control valve. I did. Still getting the same warnings.
