    Yup- most likely the temperature sensor. This happened to me in my CRX. It's located right under the distributor...

    With them...

    BTW FYI, if your thermostat was bad, it would prolly either stick shut, causing your car to over heat, or stick open causing it to run cold all the time, not both.
