hi
whats a cht sensor?
check for low coolant first any any airlocks, make sure the fan is kicking in.
after that check the pump is working by seeing if the coolant is recirculating to the bottle.
if thats all ok then maybe start to suspect you head gasket( exhaust smell in the coolant bottle or coolant smell in the exhaust fumes) or get it tested properly.
