Howdy and welcome, Leo.

Here’s a set of instructions on how to check the temp sensor.

I've said this before and I'll say it again. Get a scan tool for a vehicle from that era. An old Snap On MT2500 brick scanner is pretty cheap and can read ALL, I repeat, ALL of the data points on that system. Without reading the data, you are guessing.

Changing parts is a waste of time, money and sanity if you don't have a diagnosis.
