I just got this DTC p1285 on my car too today. 2003 3.8L v6 mustang; anyway I was running low on gas while I was on the highway til the low fuel light went on. So I stopped by a 7-eleven and filled up. It's like 92 at the lowest out here in TX and it is HOT! anyway, after filling up my "Service Engine Soon" light came on while I was leaving the gas station so I was like FUCKKKKKK. So I went to Autozone to pull the code. Sure enough it was P1285 but the Scan Tool the guy was using pulled up P1285 "Fuel & Air Meter" blah blah blah. So He looks it up and the code is "cylinder over head temperature sensed". So I bought some oil,oil filter, air filter, and some coolant: went home and tuned up my car - it DOESNT RUN HOT at all, matter a fact it stays right in the middle even after driving for a couple hours. Does anybody here know for sure exactly what it is by first-hand experience and not just guessing what it could be?
