I do not know where to start. I am wondering what to do I have an oil temp light on and am not sure if it means A/T oil temp or eng Oil Temp. The truck has been slightly sluggish when in drive but running fine in P/N, I changed the Engine oil this morning and was running as is has been usually. This afternoon I took it to the store and it was warm but not any hotter than normal and buy the time I got home I was looking at the engine, while in park, and it just died on me and would not restart with the Oil Temp Light on and no DTCs. I am letting it cool down at the moment any other Ideas?

Apparently the Oil Temp Light stays on with KOEO. So that may not have been the problem I went back outside a few mins ago and the truck started right up so I have no clue as to what could be causing this issue.

No, no lights, no DTCs, and the truck just stopped running and would not start again until a few hours later. The truck ran fine earlier in the day but towards the warmer part of the afternoon it went back to being sluggish but when I got home did not cut out and die. I do not know whats going on.

Did the engine seem to be overheating? Check oil level is good and correct oil was used?

Engine Oil Temperature Sensor
Engine Oil Temperature (EOT) sensor is a thermistor device which changes resistance proportionate to temperature changes. Resistance increases as engine oil temperature decreases and decreases as engine oil temperature increases. EOT sensor provides engine oil temperature to PCM. On some applications, EOT sensor input to PCM is used to initiate a soft engine shutdown. This prevents engine damage from occurring as a result of high oil temperature.

Yes, the engine seemed to be hotter than normal but I used the correct 5w20 as Spec is recommended for this vehicle and on the oil cap, and as for capacity it is all good. There were no lights on when the engine stopped and when the engine started again a few hours later. A fresh idea would be great!

Unfortunately now the fault has cleared up. You may never find the cause? Your car runs by computer managing it's sensors and controlling the output's. If the computer suspects there is a fault it will shut the car down. Even when no real fault may exist? This could have been a simple computer error. Let me know if it happens again
