P/N for thermo and ect sensor?

2000 f250 7.3l automatic, the guage for coolant temp isn't working after installing a new thermostat and ect sensor. I jump the 2 wires together and the needle pegged to hot, so im sure the wiring is okay, correct? I then backed out the sensor and left it plugged in, then held a map gas torch to it for a couple seconds and the temp gauge went up? I cant figure out whats going on, so I was just going to try replacing the sensor, I just want to make sure Im getting the absolute correct one because Im sick of buying 15$ sensor I cant use, the motorcraft p/n would be great. Also I think the parts store gave me the wrong thermostat, as the upper radiator hose going to the thermostat housing is soft when running, even though its hot, same with the heater hoses running from water pump to heater core. Ive been messing with this for days now motorcraft p/n for this or a good aftermarket one would be great, thanks!

first, make sure the thermostat is the "long" t-stat. Second, you want this p/n..10884-AA. Dont let them give you something different like the eot..etc, with a different p/n.

just stick with oem for the t-stat. They have prove their worthyness and so forth. Ask the parts counter to compare with others'...you'll see the difference
