    My 2011 Prius has been overheating, I have flushed the coolant, it didn't help. I bought a new coolant temperature sensor and intend to replace it, but I wanted to take some temperature readings with techstream before/after.

    Is it possible to check the engine or coolant temp with techstream?

    Thanks!

    Almost any scanner can monitor coolant temperature. I use the free "car scanner" app with a $27 bluetooth obd2 reader.
