The PCM gets and uses data from the sensor. If the sensor gets too far out of spec on the cold side you may end up with a P0118 code. Also the PCM controls the fan engagement and speed using several different parameters including coolant temperature, oil temp, AC condenser temp, trans temp, and so on. It will normally start fan engagement around 228F, which means your truck could possibly overheat. The best way to check if it is the sensor is to check the coolant temperature and compare it with the ambient temperature after the truck cools overnight. They should be the same.
