imho, tstat is a wear item. If you notice the temperature needle is low, that is probably the tstat sticking open. It could be the sensor, but honestly, I am willing to bet that 9 times out of 10, a "bad sensor" is a connector issue... so the easy first step is unplug, spray with contact cleaner, replug. If that fixes it, it avoids draining coolant etc. Changing the part is cheap and easy, but I agree with cheaptech, it is probably unnecessary most of the time.
