UPDATE:

Drove the car around more after replacing the sensor and it stopped overheating after a days use. Fan turns on and off periodically at idle and the temp gauge doesn't rise.

Still will be doing the coolant flush just so I know the last time it was done.

Thank you for all of your help.

That part number was the correct part number for your temperature switch that turns on the fans at 93 C or 200 F.

I was thinking you could have purchased temp switch b that is on the front of the engine. That switch closes at 106 C or ~223F and could have caused the high temp on the gauge until the fans kicked in.
