Yes, this sounds like a classic engine coolant temperature sensor that is not responding correctly.
Here is a guide to what you will be in for when changing the sensor out:
Here is the location for your car and the sensor test:
-4 F (-20 C) 10 - 20k ohms
32 F (0 C) 4 - 7k ohms
68 F (20 C) 2 - 3k ohms
104 F (40 C) 0.9 - 1.3k ohms
140 F (60 C) 0.4 - 0.7k ohms
176 F (80 C) 0.2 - 0.4k ohms
Coolant temperature sensor on top right of cylinder head, near ignition coil.
