might have rough idle diagnosed!!

hey so i have a rough idle and done everything to fix it cuz my gas mileage is ****!
now i found out my pcm thinks my engine temp is 135 after running for 45 minutes...
ive replaced the thermostat and ect sensor about 2 weeks ago so i figure i have a wiring problem.
i get 4.7 volt at the sensor.
i unplugged it and wired it with a paperclip but it still does the same idle shake.
so im not sure were to go from here.
my dash gauge show right below middle which i figure is about 180.
if anyone can help me i would really appreciate it
