Hello!

I have had my Eclipse Cross 2018 for 2 years now, and during these years, I have always faced the same problem.
The car would send me a warning that the engine is overheating and to stop, and after checking the car and taking it to the maintenance center, they said it’s a problem with the heat sensor and changed it.
The car worked really well for some time, and then the same problem happened again, even with the new heat sensor. And the engine icons lights up on the dashboard without there being any problem with it.

Welcome to the forums @YasmineM. Best first stop would be the dealer service team to have them check the readout of the errors that may have caused the Check Engine light to illuminate. This light comes on for many of the problems which can occur with the engine and its electronics and may not be specifically linked to the engine temp problem you saw previously. The service centre can connect to the OBD port and read off the errors held in the system to see what caused the issue. Most importantly, DO NOT disconnect the battery leads until this is checked otherwise all current error codes held in the ECU will be cleared and you won't be able to get to the bottom of the issue.

I have added the relevant page from the owners manual for your info. Also, as noted, check the fuel cap for correct installation.
