Re: Ok guys need help here

yo, yes, prob. is the temperature sending unit, its connectors, or its wiring.

Some info here: hopefully, it is accurate for your yr/model/engine:
Figure 1 ---- Do not confuse the engine coolant temperature sensor with the water temperature indicator/coolant temperature sender-1996 3.0L and 4.0L engines

If you put in a new thermostat and the temp didn't change, then the sensor is the way to go. I think your on the right track
