Is there a quick check for the temperature sensor to make sure it is good? I would rather check this first before r/r the thermostat. Thanks.

Inspect for the following conditions:

Corrosion on the ECT sensor terminals
Improper or corroded terminals at the ECT harness connector
Loose terminals in the ECT harness connector.

If all OK here, measure the voltage from the signal circuit of the ECT sensor to a good ground with a DMM. Voltages should be 4.8 - 5.2 V.
