It sounds like a funky temp sender to me.

I think number 6 is the part you may want to look into replacing. I think Temp senders and thermostats are the same? I dunno. Im judging this based on the name...

I would start by checking the cooling system to ensure it is properly purged of air, check the connections to the sending unit, etc before I moved on to replacing parts that may not be bad.
