I had the same problem. In fact, I had my thermostat replaced 3 times in 1 year. This lead me to re-think the problem. I had the same code p0128, low temp threshold. I couldn't imagine received 3 faulty thermostats. The final result was the Engine Coolant temperature sensor was faulty. It was sending low read reading to the onboard computer. Since the coolant temp sensor was replaced, no problems.

I had the same type of problem but mine was eratic working some times not working and a check engine light. I found the temp sending sensor and messed with the connection and wires and haven't had that problem ever again.

I had same intermittent issue, plus while it was happening, my remote start would not work. I replaced sensor and checked all wires but problem persisted. This year I replaced the factory wheels with custom wheels which forced me to replace the tire pressure sensors. That cured the problem. Somehow that was fooling and sending bad info to the computer, causing this annoying problem.

I am having the same problem. Only this morning on the way to work I ran over a piece of metal, sensor stopped working and check engine light came on? Is there a way that the metal could have hit the sensor?

I just bought a 2006 HHR. I only had iita couple of days of having it it red line on the temperature. I had my nephew flush it out for me and put new antifreeze in it.it also was a sensor I believe. but now its overheating again any suggestions??
