Well, you're almost at the "next 60,000" mark, where one would assume it would fail again. Mine in my 330 failed at about 60,000, and that seems to be the magic mileage numbrer for failuire. As recommended here, reset it, keep and eye on your temp, and if it comes back, replace it (much cheaper than replacing your engine....).
