It won't change on its own. It would require that someone work on the engine. 
The common problem arises when the starter is replaced and the wires on it 
are put back on in the wrong places.

These are the temp SENSORS, and they have nothing to do with the CSV. 
The temp SWITCH is different and is a larger lump with a single terminal 
mounted to the case under the intake air distributor. The SW|ITCH is either 
open or closed, depending on the temp. Basically, at any temp above 40F it 
will be open.
