You might find your wiring is shitty, or your plug is damaged, or possibly your sensor is half dead.
Id check the wiring, change the plug AND SENSOR, preferably for new items or good second hand items.

The harness connector is often baked and falling apart by the time the car gets a standalone. You can replace the connector with a standard fuel injector connector from any auto parts store. You just need to grind the little offset tab off of the water temp sensor (use a file...you'll see what I mean when you compare the connector and sensor).
