Getting trouble code P1028. Have replace the ECT. Cleared code and less than week later code back. Temperature guage appears normal (~195 degrees when warmed up). Is there another temp sensor somewhere as the code will clear on its own if the outside temp is below 45 degrees. Manual states that ECT acts as both the temp sending unit and input for PCM. What should next step be?

Reason: Adding truck information
Replace the t-stat. 99% of the time it takes care of the problem.
