Most likely you ran into a curb while parking and riped off the temp sensor in the front splash panel. Take it to the dealership to get the correct wire repair and sensor replacement.

My 2007 Chevy HHR 2.2L, coolant temp sensor is reading that the coolant temp is 20 degrees warmer than the outside temp after sitting for over 12 hours and the operating temp gets to 214 degrees without...


Sure the engine coolant will be warmer than the outside temperture and if the car has been sitting a long time in cold weather and the outside temperture warms up it could be the other way around. The coolant temperture sensers aren't real accurate as they are a relaitive senser beween hot and cold and the numbers reported don't have to be real just the change from hot to cold and the reching of the coolant to the operating temperture. Noe it the senser doesn't read the opertating temperture coprrectly you'll have all kinds of problems. The therostaste will try to set the temperture of the water to it's set temperture and can open or close completly to get 195 degrees F. Many times if it's too cold then the stat is bad and needs to be replaced This shows up in alot of cars first thing after winter and the first onset of cold weather when the daily tempertures vary the most from day to night.

My van always reads outside temperture 50 degrees it does not change


Possible fault in the sensor/thermocouple or the temperature controller unit.
Locate and use some heat on the sensor to check if this works , if not it this must be changed.

ok sensor I is located at the right of the top side oil filter, and sensor II is located to the very front right corner of the engine, they should just turn out like a bolt, diconnect the wires first of course and then tunr them out and replace then, make sure to put anti seize on the threads when installing new ones, reconnect wires and test again.
